Environmentally Friendly, Green Electro-Plasma Coating Technology
Electrolytic Plasma Technology [EPT], is an effective surface engineering tool that combines the cleaning and coating of metals. During EPT processing, DC voltage is applied to the electrodes in an aqueous electrolyte, which produces plasma at the surface of the workpiece. Thermal, chemical, electrical and mechanical effects imparted by EPT to the workpiece create unique surface characteristics.
The EPT process uses electricity and benign electrolytes for cleaning, eliminating the need for strong acids. This greatly reduces the cost of the process by reducing/eliminating the need for toxic materials handling, storage, and disposal of these harsh chemicals.

EPT VS. ACID PICKLING/GALVANTIZATION
EPT coatings are very effective against corrosion.
In fact, EPT coatings from CAP have been proven to last twice as long as HDG coatings of comparable coating weights in salt spray tests (According to ASTM B117).
