Dip coatings are used to cover a dipped workpiece. This process is especially suitable for coating complicated structures and large batches. For vehicle bodies (cathodic) electrophoretic coating is a standard procedure for ensuring corrosion protection. Alongside providing functional properties, such as protection against corrosion, the demands placed on the optical appearance have also steadily increased. The recommended effect pigments from ECKART were developed specially for dip coating and give the final product a very eye-catching gloss.
