The Electrocoat Association’s mission (see About Us tab) is all about education – creating learning and networking experiences that make a real difference in your work, your business and even to the technology itself through new, innovative techniques and products.

Currently we produce the ECOAT Conference, presented in even-numbered years;  an annual Electrocoating Seminar that travels to various regional locations with a strong manufacturing base;  a book, Electrocoat:  A Guidebook for Finishers; and, beginning in June, 2018, our new Webinar product. 

We also provide educational programming and speakers for co-sponsored events and are in the development stage of several online resource tools.
