With the present ecological concern throughout the nation, electrocoating has become of great interest in many diverse areas. The scanning electron microscope provides a tool for surface examination which can provide much more information than simple topography. Variation of accelerating voltage can give information about the sample below the coating surface. Examination of electrocoated samples at different time intervals gives insight into the coating deposition mechanism. With knowledge of the electrocoating mechanism it is possible to tailor the surface to optimum coating condition. The ease with which the scanning electron microscope allows the determination of many coating and surface characteristics make it an invaluable tool. (Author-PL) ANNOTATION: The scanning electron microscope applied to electrocoating problems.
