ElectroFin e-coating receives highest durability rating

Certified to meet toughest marine and industrial conditions

(2 February 2016) ElectroFin® E-Coat by Luvata, the world’s largest coils, coolers and coatings group, has received C5 classification (top certification for coatings used in marine and industrial areas with high salinity) along with the highest durability rating (greater than 15 years before first major maintenance) according to ISO 12499.

The C5-Marine & Industrial/High Durability certification is commonly requested for:

  • Chillers
  • Air Handing Units (AHUs)
  • Air and dry coolers
  • Industrial radiators
  • Condensers
  • Hybrid coolers
  • Process coolers
  • Mobile AC (bus, train, off highway)
  • Data centers and precision AC
  • Power generation
  • Industrial heat exchangers


For all these applications and many others, ElectroFin E-coat is a guarantee of corrosion protection and long-term reliability.

ElectroFin E-coat with UV topcoat fulfills the requirements for both copper and aluminum panels, which are the most common materials used for the world of heat exchangers (finned pack, microchannel and parallel flow). Using ElectroFin E-coat on these products extends their corrosion resistance for over 15 years even in the most critical environments. ElectroFin is ideally suited for industrial areas with high humidity and an aggressive atmosphere, such as nuclear and power plants, refineries, steam turbines, deserts, coastal and offshore areas with high salinity, and buildings or areas with nearly permanent condensation and high pollution.

There are five corrosion-protection classes in which paint coatings are subdivided. The C5-Marine & Industrial/High Durability classification is considered the top certification for the heat exchanger coatings in terms of application, performance and durability. Today ISO 12944 is considered the most comprehensive and frequently accepted certification. This certification includes:

  • Coating thickness and adhesion testing (according to ISO 2808 and ISO 2409)
  • Long exposure in water and high-humidity atmosphere (according to ISO 2812 and ISO 6270)
  • Salt-spray test and exposure in chemicals (according to ISO 9227 and ISO 2812)


ElectroFin E-Coat is a factory-applied, full-immersion solution. Recognized internationally by HVAC/R equipment manufacturers as the best corrosion protection coating for coastal environments, ElectroFin E-Coat extends the lives of HVAC/R heat transfer coils and components while reducing maintenance and operating costs.
