The final step in the electrocoat process is to cure the film. The electrocoat film is cured in the electrocoat oven, a heated chamber or chambers that creates a chemical reaction to cure the electrocoat. The chemical reaction, crosslinking, bonds the electrocoat molecules together creating a durable paint film to assure maximum performance properties. There are numerous electrocoat oven types, designs and concepts available. How do you choose an oven? How is an oven maintained? Why do ovens get dirty?
