A distinction is made between:
(a) Lacquers dispersed in water for the electrophoretic dip primer. Advantages: evenness of coating, saving of solvents, fire resistance associated with elimination of solvent vapor (see electrophoresis).
(b) Air- and oven drying, water-dilutable lacquers manufactured from a specific combination of synthetic resin. Used as top coat, chassis lacquer or primer within the automobile- and commercial vehicle sector.
