Plymouth Technology Executive Introduces Technical Advancement for ECoat Solids Management

The following is an excerpt from our official press release! If you are going to ECoat16, have an electrocoating or product finishing business, or just love to read up on the latest technical advancements in industrial chemical wastewater treatment, you can see the full release HERE.

Plymouth Technology, the industrial wastewater chemical experts based out of Rochester Hills, MI, has announced that Vice-President Steven Buday will be speaking at the ECOAT16 show on February 17th at 2:30 PM. Mr. Buday will be introducing Alternative Methods of Treatment and Disposal of Electrocoat Paint, focusing on reducing labor requirements, minimizing capital equipment and associated costs through the use of Plymouth Technology’s superabsorbent polymers.

"A chief bottleneck in the wastewater management process is dewatering the detackified paint solids,” said Mr. Buday, "This translates into added labor to unclog, clean, or even replace filter press plate ports. If an undersized press is being operated, multiple press cycles will be required per detakification treatment as well. The new process is dramatically simpler and significantly lowers the total cost of operations.”

Don't forget to checkout our friends over at Products Finishing Magazine, the Electrocoat Association, and ECoat16 for more information.

Electrocoating and Product Finishing - Adding Value and Reducing Cost

Your average Joe may not be aware of it, but every day he is surrounded by parts that have been improved through one finishing process or another. Even fewer Joe's are knowledgeable about the great scientific minds, applying some outstanding chemistry, that helped build an industry committed to excellence.

For the past two years, Products Finishing Magazine has been shining the spotlight on these great minds by inducting contributors to the industry into the Electroplating Hall of Fame. The most recent Hall of Fame class consists of names such as William Blum, Henry Brown, Michael Faraday, Richard Hull, and Oliver Watts.

Each gentleman that was honored in the 2015 class used their understanding of chemistry to add value and reduce costs, shouldn't the same knowledge be applied to treat the wastewater produced? We believe Ecoat and Product Finishing businesses should expect the same value and cost reductions that drive the metals finishing industry.

Is Cheap Chemistry Costing You More?

Imagine for a moment, you just purchased a high-end sports car that you have invested a lot of time, energy, and money to make sure it was the perfect driving machine. Now the time has come to feed the beast, you are presented with two fuel choices; Regular and Premium. What do you put in the tank?

In that scenario, the choice is obvious. You wouldn't heavily invest in something, just to turn around and not protect it both inside and out. The same is true for your water and wastewater systems! You expect your system to last, so protect it with the RIGHT chemistry! The right chemistry is not always the most expensive, but cheap chemistry is a welcome mat for system failure and additional costs to replace what your low-cost provider's chemicals failed to protect.

Plymouth Technology is committed to finding the right chemistry that provides optimal system protection at the lowest cost, because your system is too important for "cookie-cutter" chemistry! If you would like one of our highly trained water professionals to survey your system at no cost or commitment, call us at (248) 537-0081 or send an e-mail to!
