BASF: Lugalvan® EDC from BASF is a transparent, cathodic electrodeposition coating with high scratch resistance. According to the company, this new transparent product for sealing metal surfaces differs from conventional electrodeposition coatings in that it is not pigmented, which makes it more versatile. The coating forms a crystal-clear layer that protects metal from corrosion and prevents it from tarnishing. Because it is applied by electrophoretic deposition, this new product is particularly suited to the demands of electroplating companies. The company reports that the main practical advantage of the coating is that it consists of only one component, which makes it easier to use than the conventional two-component on the market.
