  • 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.
  • 5 Tips to Keep your Parts Clean when Powder Coating

    Coating anything requires good prep to assure a flawless finish. This is true for painting with an HVLP Gun, spray paint, or powder coating.

  • What is "Hot Flocking" and When do I do it?

    This helps with adhesion, but can be VERY tricky if you aren't careful. Start by cleaning your parts as good as possible, including any paint, grease or oil. I then like to run the part through the heat and cool cycle once heating the part past the curing temperature of your powder (check your powder bottle for the temperature). I then do one last wipe down with Acetone and then put it back in the oven and heat it to the curing temperature until the ENTIRE part is reading the cure temperature. Using an IR thermometer is key here.
