Description / Abstract:

This specification covers the requirements for a black, waterborne autodeposition coating suitable for use on underhood, chassis and interior steel components. Application is by immersion of thoroughly cleaned steel. Maximum corrosion protection is afforded by the coating’s ability to form on any surface that can be wet.

Note: Grade A is obsolete. Grade A currently contains hexavalent chromium and is not to be specified for new applications.

Material Description. Five (5) grades of autodeposition coatings are available and are defined herein as Grades A, B, C, D and E.

Grade A; is a low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) waterborne material with a cure temperature of 180 °C to 200 °C. Note: Grade A is obsolete.

Grade B and Grade C; are zero VOC, waterborne materials that oven cure in the range of 100 °C to 115 °C.

Grade D; is a very low VOC, waterborne material with a cure temperature of 130 °C to 190 °C.

Grade E; is a low VOC, two (2) coat, waterborne material with a cure temperature of 150 °C to 170 °C.

All grades are generally used without a topcoat. However, compatible topcoats may be used if acceptable performance is verified prior to production usage. Autodeposition should not be specified for aluminum substrates or aluminized steel. Coating of galvanized steel should be verified and tested on a case-by-case basis prior to approval.

Grade B and Grade C; should not be used when components are exposed to service conditions in excess of 120 °C. Components should be evaluated under operating conditions when the service temperature is between 95 °C and 120 °C.

Grade C; is intended for use at low film build in interior or similar applications that require only moderate corrosion resistance.

Grade D; has improved resistance to fastener chatter.

Grade E; has reduced gloss, is highly flexible, heat resistant, and rubber bondable. Grade E is also moderately Ultraviolet (UV) resistant.

Note: On engineering drawings, this standard requires the grade to be designated which defines the performance level for the coating, (see Section 8 Coding System).

Symbols. Not applicable.

Applicability. A black, waterborne autodeposition coating suitable for use on underhood, chassis and interior steel components.

Remarks. Volatile organic compound.

Grade A must not exceed 240 g/L.

Grade B is VOC free.

Grade C is VOC free.

Grade D must not exceed 25 g/L.

Grade E has two (2) coats; the first is VOC free, and the second coat must not exceed 110 g/L.
