Winnebago’s electrocoating (E-Coat) process cycles parts and assemblies through a 10-stage, full-immersion system. The E-Coat system is similar to that used by automotive companies and helps protect against corrosion.
This system is unique to Winnebago and keeps us ‘best in class’ among motorhome manufacturers. Extensive amounts of steel are used in Winnebago motorhomes for strength and durability and it is vitally important to protect the steel through the e-coat process to help reduce corrosion. We take pride in going above and beyond to deliver a true quality advantage that helps extend the life of our motorhomes. No one else in the industry has this capability.
The e-coat system processes piece parts and assemblies through a 10-stage, full-immersion electro-coating system capable of accepting loads 5′ wide x 16′ long x 6′ high. The first seven stages are used for pretreatment and involve cleaning, treating with a nano-ceramic conversion coating and deionized water rinse for good conductivity. The final three stages are used for the e-coat and rinse cycles. Electro-deposition is accomplished by charging the components with electricity, and then paint film is bonded to the body to a desired thickness.
The Winnebago E-Coat Process, one more way we strive to build the best RV in the market!
