Our E-Coat Process
All Advance Carts metal shopping carts go through an automotive 11-stage electrocoat dip-tank finishing system after they are welded and assembled. After a thorough multi-tank cleaning process the products receive a zinc phosphate precoat and are then immersed in an acrylic electro-deposition tank where a high gloss black acrylic topcoat is charged onto the products. The products are oven cured to fully crosslink and cure the electrocoat topcoat providing an extremely durable and rust-resistant finish (especially in difficult to reach areas and joints), the process ensures resistance to water, humidity, salt, and UV rays as well as extreme ambient temperatures. Our ecoat is SGS corrosion tested for maximum lifespan and protection.
