The Cathode Electro Deposition or CED method of painting is a cross between painting and electroplating. In this process, the metal is immersed in the paint emulsion which is mixed with a water-based solution and electricity is passed through the system to coat the metal with paint.
The thickness of the painting application on the metal depends on the voltage of the electricity passed through the system. A final rinsing in another tank of the painted metal part then readies them for curing with heat and for further processing. CED coating is a widely used technique for painting auto components such as wheel rims, underbody, etc. More often than not, only shades of black colour are used.
Although the CED method provides a protective and decorative finish to the metal it is often prone to flaws. These flaws can be attributed to various mechanical, chemical, substrate-related as well as environmental factors. Some of the common flaws or defects arising out of an imperfect CED coating job are:
- gloss variation
- colour variation
- thin coating
- orange peel
