What is Aquence™ Coating?

Aquence™, previously branded under the Autophoretic® name, is a chemical coating used in a process where an organic polymeric emulsion chemically deposits on the surface of a clean metal substrate.

A unique feature of the Aquence™ coating is the formation of a uniform film over the entire surface of the work piece, even in difficult-to-reach areas. This allows the coating dispersion to flow into and around the most complex shapes providing a uniform film build on the entire work piece.

Aquence™ is an approved finish for all the leading automotive companies and is also approved for office furniture, railcar, and several other industries. The mechanical characteristics meet or surpass those of e-coat and powder coat at less cost. Clark Pulley Industries is proud to be the only pulley supplier with this in-house capability.
