Elite HotCoat Powder Coating Kit is rated 4.4118 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so good I bought this to do small cases and after a brief learning curve, am really happy with the product. I had two minor problems with the system when I got it. First the diffuser that is standard with the gun would not fit. The hole that the electrode should fit through was too small. Second the alligator clip that you attach to the part was bent. Clip simply needed to be bent back with some pliers and since I got the elite kit I used the other diffuser that came with the kit. Too bad the ovens are so expensive. I am using an inexpensive toaster oven and it does the job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazing Tool! To begin with, I had NEVER tried powdercoating, or even done much painting. When I decided to try it out on some pieces of a 1975 MGB I am restoring, I ordered the Elite Hotcoat kit....smart move! The only other thing I needed was an oven, and I picked up a used one for $25 from a local used appliance store. I later added a no-contact thermometer (also a smart move). First attempt yielded EXCELLENT results. As friends saw how my parts were turning out, I started to get lots of requests from others. Finally had to start turning them down so I could get back to my own project! Super simple to do and I've been amazed at the number of uses I've found. Great product, great price! Now I need a bigger oven for motorcycle frames!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, easy to use I bought this kit and have used it for six months. After blasting, I have powdercoated most of my front suspension parts, including coil springs. They came out beautifully. Best to preheat the items at 400 degrees for at least 5 minutes before coating. The powders are reasonably priced and flow out beautifully. And it won't chip with a hammer strike. It made 50 year old suspension parts look like new! All parts powdercoated in this photo of my 1959 Triumph Suspension.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ecstatic I am a metal sculptor and purchased this system to use on some of my smaller work which yielded excellent results. I now use it everyday and have eliminated aerosols from my shop, which is great for the environment. There are a few tricks to learn, but the manual is helpful and adequate. I do wish Eastwood would make the activator line and the gun line several feet longer so one can keep the power box farther away from the powder painting area. Overall this is a great item at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal for me I bought the kit on sale and also joined the buyer's cllub. Very easy to use. I joined the powder coat forum after about a week and asked a few questions about problems I was having. Got straight forward answers and never looked back. I've had excellent results. Any shortcomings are due to my limitations and not the equipment. Plan to start building a larger oven next week. Buyer's club also saves money on powder and shipping. Already got my money's worth in shipping alone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for a durable coating.. Product works well, easy to use with no training. Time will tell how well the system last. have coated 5 or 6 pieces,happy with the results from my efford. I think with time Ithe finished product to look as good or better than a other work . I would just like to thank eastwood for offering such products for the hobbiest, these types of products over time will save me a ton of money, and I can say that "I did that part myself!!!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent I bought this simply for the fact of how much it cost to get something powdercoated,it was a great investment. It is an excellent kit to get into powdercoating, easy to use and I have expanded my supplies to do more. The only disadvantage is not of the kit but of an oven, for while a household oven does the job you are very limited to the size of what you can realistically can do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I bought the Elite Hot Coat Powder Coating Kit #12859. It was shown in video. Now on the color chart there is a dual voltage gun. For $60 more I could have bought this kit. For a beginner I am disappointed I got this one. I just didn’t want to send my kit back and reorder. (Shipping$$) Over all I am very satisfied with the gun. Now the book not so good. I have to learn from trial.

Can you use this kit to coat really small pieces? Like 1"-4" long pieces of copper tubing? I've never powder coated before and wasn't sure if this was something I need to factor in when deciding on a kit.

Asked by: jzim
Yes, there is no technical limit to how small the parts can be in order to be effectively powder coated. The only limitations are practical in terms of mounting the parts to be coated and handling them in order to get from the point where you powder the items to where you bake them in the oven.

About Elite HotCoat Powder Coating Kit

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 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 System requires a 5-10psi compressed air source and dedicated electric oven (or toaster oven).

(A) Yes, use Eastwood's 12849 Powder Coat & Paint Dissolver (Qt.) or 12850 Powder Coat & Paint Dissolver (Gal.).

(Q) How do I know what the colors will look like?
(A) Order Eastwood's 51558 HotCoat Powder Coating Chip Chart (free in our kits).


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.


1-year mfr's. warranty against defects.

Designed, engineered and tested to Eastwood's specifications.
