What is E-Coated Chain?

By -

Have you heard about E-coated chains? Imagine a world where you never have to polish your silver and they keep their sparkle and shine. E-coat stands for electrophoretic coating, which is a process where particles of lacquer are attached to the metal using an electric current. With this technique, the organic material adheres to the metal creating a protective coating, while similar to a plating, E-coat comes in many colors, but we like the clear to add a protective coating. Not only does it protect against wear and tarnish, but it also provides a hypoallergenic barrier that can be worn by anyone. Because it’s a dipping process, it offers a very even and consistent coating that completely adheres to the entire outer surface of the metal.

E- Coating is extremely durable and resists both environmental, as well as indoor factors like household chemicals and personal care products, making it perfect for protecting jewelry. At Wholesale Jewelry Supply we have started offering our sterling chains with a clear protective E-coat. E-coated chains come in both finished styles with clasps as well as by the foot. We have a great selection of styles to go with any of your designs or to be worn alone.

First developed for use in the auto industry as an anti-corrosive, E coating is now something you can do at home with the right equipment. With an investment of about $1500 you can play with E-coating in colors or clear at home. It comes in about 12 different colors that can be applied with a 4 step process that includes polishing, cleaning, coating, and curing. The beauty of E-coating is that it creates a transparent coating of color that let’s the metal shine through, unlike enamel that creates an opaque look of color. Our E-coat chains are all coated with the transparent to offer protection to your chains without altering the color. We hope you love our new e-coated chains and would love to have your feedback on them.
