PHILADELPHIA - Axalta Coating Systems announced the complete global rollout of its AquaEC™ 6100 portfolio of electrodeposition coatings for customers in Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.

The most recent AquaEC innovation, AquaEC 6100 was introduced in North America earlier this year. Formulated to offer excellent mechanical properties, superior corrosion resistance, improved throw power and enhanced edge protection, AquaEC 6100 offers customers improved productivity benefits and reduced application costs. The tin-free technology used in AquaEC 6100 also helps meet environmental goals.

The AquaEC E-Coat portfolio of products provides job coaters and other customers with a combination of product benefits and application technologies. Axalta experts are eager to understand and address the unique application requirements of customers in the complex marketplace that relies on electrodeposition technology to prevent corrosion and help materials last longer.

AquaEC has continued to fulfill the needs of customers ranging from light vehicle and heavy duty truck manufacturers to a spectrum of industrial applications. In 2015, AquaEC expanded its product portfolio to meet the requirements of manufacturers of agricultural, construction and earth-moving equipment. The combination of AquaEC E-Coats, further supported by other Axalta liquid and powder coatings and coupled with the company’s global footprint, position Axalta to meet the demanding technology and performance requirements of heavy equipment manufacturers.
