Eastwood Dual Voltage HotCoat Powder Coating Gun is rated 4.291666666666667 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time Powder Coater learning fast I've had my Eastwood, Dual Voltage Powder Coating Gun for about a week. I received a series of emails, from Eastwood, on "How to Powdercoat" that are great. Lots of good base info to help get started. I've powder coated a crankshaft pulley and an alternator bracket set, both for a Big Block Chevy Hotrod build. All the parts have turned out really nice in Gloss Black from Eastwood. I have several other colors and am very excited to use other colors. I'd like to make this a part-time business. Over all, I'm very happy with the gun, powders and free information fron Easrwood. I've been a regular customer for years. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good smooth gun for the money I have read many derogatory reviews about leaking, missing parts etc. I picture the suburban MTD owner that expects the same performance of a $20,000 mower. This is my second "hobbyist" gun. The first was a single voltage with the hopper mounted above the gun. This gun sprays a much smoother and more consistent pattern (use your brain and a regulator!). The dual voltage seems to help with multi-coat/color projects. Great value; I seriously was considering buying a $700 gun to finish a project because I was so fed up with my old one, but am glad I gave this one a chance. I did mount a different switch however, to allow use of both hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this one. I bought the original gun first, but it leaked powder from the cap and returned it. Since I just got hooked on coating on my options to replace the gun were limited on a system due to my budget. I decided to buy the dual voltage Hotcoat gun. After the first use I was ecstatic the thing did not leak at all. I cannot believe how much better the dual voltage unit is over the original system. My only complaint and it is the same for the original, but the grounding clip is very wimpy. Do yourself a favor, buy this system instead of the original system. For the few extra dollars it costs, it is worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from dual voltage powdercoat gun works well! I was very impressed with this gun right off the bat. It's application was smooth and consistant,powder attaching itself much more readily than my first gun which I've owned since around 1991.My only complaint is the chinciness of the ground clamp which fell apart during my first session with the gun. I have since installed the ground clamp from my previous eastwood gun and am off and running again. In closing I would recommend this gun to anyone wanting an affordable powdercoating system. P.S. I'm actually saving on wasted powder with this gun because less powder ends up on my catch paper than with the old gun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I bought the Dual voltage gun and I used it once and the lid was cracked,it leaked more powder then what came out of the end of the gun. I returned it and received another gun and it leaked the same as the first one, I have a glued it and it worked ok for little while, glued it again and now the lid itself is stripped out where the bottle screws on. (still leaks)I would be willing to pay more money for a better product and all they need to do is make the lid out of metal and seal it properley. I am now buying a REAL powder gun and powder from another supplier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item To be honest I did not think this product would perform the way it did. Really awsome product, despite simple design an low cost materials.However this proves the fact that things dont have to be over- engeneered to work.I now have 4 units, and this makes colorchanges easier. If youhave to change from black to white you have to make sure the gun is ABSOLUTELY clean. One black fragment in the white finish....You do the math.. I have one gun for white,one for clear, and to for all others. -Easy(and looks cool...) I also purchased a lot of bottles so I dont have to empty one to cange colors. Cheap and time saving. I would also recomend 2 steps to better the performance of this gun: 1: I glued the activator switch to the left side of the gun handle. This makes it possible to use the thumb to activate the power. Left hand is then free . 2: I put a thin rubber gasket inside the lid attached to the gun. This makes a good seal, -without it the gun can leak powder through the bottle threads. Summary: I love it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not overly impressed so far I ordered this gun to complete a project for a customer. It took three weeks to arrive(Canada). It came without the diffuser on the end of the gun. I talked to support and they said they would mail the part out the next day. When I asked if it could be rushed to me so I could complete the project soon for my customer the reply was 'we will send it regular post, it shouldn't take too long'. Not too happy here with the service and I haven't even tried the item out yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfies Have original system..worked ok. Was looking to have better coverage with less waste. Designed a nozzel for the original that directed powder much better that those that came with system, Using this new....higher voltage system is great. We finished a group of hinges we were using outside on a building. Coverage was quicker, thicker coating, thus much better flow and coverage. Thanks Eastwood, for this product.

Can the wire leads be extended without effecting the performance. They tend to be too short and you have to drag control box around.

Asked by: t3184sm
We do not recommend cutting and splicing the wiring of this unit.

When changing powder color, what is a good way of getting all remaining powder left behind in the canister so the colors do not mix?

Asked by: Joestl
You can blow the powder gun out with compressed air to make sure your previous color is out of the unit before switching to your second color.

When should the diffuser be used? I use it all the time and it seems to limit the cloud travel. Are you only supposed to use it in certain circumstances?

Asked by: JMTX
There's no specific circumstance when you would want to use it instead of using the gun with it removed, it's all based entirely on personal preference. I've found that it works well for some projects, and it works better without it on others. I'd encourage you to experiment with using the diffuser and without to determine which you prefer.

About Dual Voltage HotCoat Powder Gun

The Dual Voltage HotCoat gun is one of the best powder coating guns on the market today. Why powder coat? Because it gives you one of the most economical, color-durable, and longest-lasting finishes available. You'll find powder-coated surfaces are far more resistant to chipping, scratches, fading, and wear than other finishes, and the color selection is virtually unlimited, with high and low gloss, metallic, and clear finishes available. And thanks to the UV resistance of many of the powders, colors stay bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled or matte finish, plus rough textures designed for hiding surface imperfections.

One 8-oz. bottle of powder (not included) covers the same area as 2-3 cans of spray paint, and clean-up is easy, since you can simply sweep-up the oversprayed powder. Contains no environmentally harmful solvents. HotCoat powder coating requires a 5-10psi compressed air source and dedicated electric oven (or toaster oven).


Contents

FAQs

(Q) How long does the baking process take?
(A) For improved flow out (less "orange peel"), bake coated parts at 500 degreesF until powder flows out (about 3-4 minutes for light sheet metal parts), then turn down the heat to 400 degreesF for a full 15 minutes.

(Q) What are the electrical requirements?
(A) This HotCoat Gun requires 110-125VAC, 2 amps at 50-60 Hz. Can be used with a voltage transformer such as 220-240VAC to 110-125VAC as long as the transformer can handle 2 amps.


Safety

Use a disposable dust mask when handling or applying powder. Powder, like common flour, can be explosive when suspended in the air in high concentrations. To minimize any explosion risk, sweep up—do not vacuum—powder from the floor. Cure powder in a well-ventilated area. The urethane powders we sell liberate a very minute amount of isocyanates when the powder flows out. This usually occurs about 3-5 minutes after the part is placed in the oven to bake. Wear a respirator with fresh filter cartridges when curing or inspecting flow-out progress.
