    Maximum unit size and weight.
  4. "AquaEC™ 6100 Technical Data Sheet" by AXALTA, 2015.

    A Cathodic epoxy electrocoat that offers excellent mechanical properties, superior corrosion resistance, and enhanced edge protection.
  5. Performance and Military Specs Performed by Independent Test Laboratories, 2018.

    Independent ASTM testing for meeting performance specifications and military specificaitons.
  6. "Comparison of Heat Exchanger Corrosion-Retardant Ratings" by CoreKote 2000™.

    A comparison of the properties of 5 coatings purported to offer protection of heat exchangers from corrosion.
  7. "Selection Guide: Environmental Corrosion Protection" - Carrier Study on Coatings for Heat Exchangers, by Carrier Corporation, April, 2006.

    Laboratory testing of e-Coating by Carrier and its conclusion that e-Coating is, by far, the best available technology to protect heat exchangers from corroding.
  8. Carrier Prohesion Cycle Test Results with added note by CoreKote 2000™, 2003.

    A part of the Carrier study showing that, after 100 hundred hours of an aggressive corrosion testing (Prohesion Test), that e-Coated units retain 100% of their ability to transfer heat.
  9. Magnified Image and Diagram of e-Coated Joint from Carrier Study, 2003.

    A part of the Carrier study that shows a close-up photographic image of an e-Coated tube-to-fin joint.
  10. "The Valeo™ Heat Exchanger Study" SAE Paper 920180 - Valeo Heat Exchanger Corrosion Study & 10-year Life Expectancy of E-Coated Heat Exchangers.

    A 100+ radiator unit test performed by Valeo, a large manufacturer of heat exchangers, in conjunction with the Copper Development Association, which concludes that e-Coating is the best available technology to retard corrosion on heat exchangers. It measures: rates of corrosion, air-pressure drop, loss of heat transfer (from the e-Coating's film thickness), cost analysis, environmental impact, and process impact in heat exchangers. (The original Valeo study without highlights, unedited.)
