  • How to Cure Powder

    Powder Coating is a simple process when you break it down. A static charge causes the powder to stick to the part and you cook it to perfection? Right?! Well it isn't quite that simple as a number of factors can cause your powder job to fail if you aren't careful. The #1 reason for a poor powder finish is improper prep of the part before powder coating. The second is application, and the third is curing the powder. We often get calls and emails about trying to find work-arounds for curing powder at home. I decided to list some of the methods we've been asked about and the methods we prefer.

  • Tricks to getting dry Compressed Air

    The invention of compressed air running tools to make jobs easier is amazing and can make our lives much easier when working in our home shop. Unfortunately some tasks to require clean, dry air to allow the tool to work as it should. For instance your media blaster HATES moisture in the air and will clog the blaster nozzle up quickly if your air isn't very dry. While your paint gun doesn't care if it's spraying 100% water or paint; your paint DOES car and you will have issues with a paint job if your air isn't dry. Not to mention the lifespan of your air tools can be greatly reduced if you don't have dry air running through them! We put together a few products that can be life-savers if you can't afford an expensive filtration system at the compressor (the CORRECT, long term way to solve air moisture issues).
