Autodeposition application advantages
- Fewer steps than conventional painting (less space/time).
- Waterborne process/non-electrical (fire/worker safety).
- Simple process equipment materials of construction.
- Flexible to variable throughput rates (racking/line speed).
- Coats only reactive metals (assemblies and R/M possible).
Henkel invests in the development and continuous improvement of our Aquence® Coating Chemicals to meet the increase demands of automotive OEMs on material and value performance.
Review the current automotive applications from Aquence® users around the world: frame and chassis, interior, steel wheels and pulleys, and suspension.
Frame and Chassis
Example: engine cradle
Automotive chassis components are completely coated inside and out with Aquence®.
Example: brake pedal
Coated as metal and plastic assembly seat frame Imagine the savings for total manufacturing costs with the ability to coat an entire seat frame pre-assembled.
Example: seat frame
Imagine the savings for total manufacturing costs with the ability to coat an entire seat frame pre-assembled.
Steel Wheels and Pulleys
Aquence® coats where it wets, retaining dimensional stability and tolerances.
Example: suspension part
Coated as metal and plastic assembly
Example: ride control
Coated as finished product, reducing production cycle time, in-process inventory, and labor costs.
Henkel has developed many unique engineering design applications for the use of Aquence® Coating Chemicals on general industrial parts.
Review the current general industrial applications from Aquence® users around the world: agricultural, appliance parts, electric motors and compressors and metal furniture.
Agricultural & construction machinery
Example: construction frame
The low temperature cure process for Aquence® 800 Series allows for fast and efficient coating of heavy mass parts tractor cabs The ability to coat and protect the interior of tubular structures makes Aquence® a strong candidate for agricultural frame components
