POWDER COATING

 

Here is a great way to paint small parts. The process is simple, requiring only an old electric oven to bake the finish on.

Here’s how it works!

Firstly, the surface of the part is suitably prepared, just as you would for any other paint job.

 


The special gun is attached to an air compressor, and a power unit. The air blows the powder from the gun, and the power unit gives the powder a positive charge. At the same time, the power unit is connected to the piece being coated, and so it has a negative charge. As the positive paint particles fly through the air, they are attracted to the part and lay in an even layer over the entire area of the part. (This works a little like dust on a TV screen.)

The part is then placed in an dedicated electric oven, and baked for a while. This cures the coating to a tough chemical resistant finish.

It is important not to use a gas oven, as the emissions from the coating are flammable.

The moisture filter must be changed regularly to ensure best operation.

Why are our powder guns better than our competitors?

  • Our powders cups are tapered to provide smoother flow.
  • The charge switch is controlled by a foot pedal, leaving your hands free - competitor's are hand controlled.
  • The power pack is more compact and lighter.
  • Sturdier construction - less powder leaks
  • Works with any manufacturers virgin powder coating. Do not use reclaimed powder.

GLOW IN THE DARK

Our Glow In The Dark powder coating additive is a class of newly developed phosphorescent (glow-in-the-dark) pigments which are based on Strontium Oxide Aluminate Chemistry. They are drastically different from conventional phosphorescent pigments which are either based on Zinc Sulfide or on radioisotopes for their self-luminous properties.
