Curing the Film

The coated and rinsed vehicle body or body part then enters an oven for drying and curing. Most electrodeposition baking ovens are multi-zoned, allowing for individual temperatures in each zone. This permits the staged baking required to gradually remove the film volatiles, avoiding solvent or water-spotting and maximizing film flow for optimum finished appearance.
