Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product and easy to use! Purchased basic powder coating unit and JD green powder to coat hydraulic brake system I make for old JD Gators. Used the e/stove my wife replaced and other than the parts racking you would have thought I had been powder coating all my life . The equipment was extremely easy to learn and operate and the process was exactly as written in the basic instructions. I would highly recommend this equipment to anyone with a desire to powder coat anything that will fit in their baking system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Very good deal, perfect for the DIY guy looking to spruce up his projects and make a little side cash. Easy to understand instructions and even easier to use! Fast shipping, they said friday I got it on thursday, ordered tuesday!! Only con being it didn't come with 50 lbs of each color powder but I guess they can't give it away like that! Pre-heat dirty parts to burn any old oil out of the nooks and crannys that a wire wheel win't get into and it'll put a perfect finish on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Nicely done Eastwood, you have a customer for life. The service was amazing, and the product even better. The package deal is perfect for starting off, includes great color, all masking materials, and wire. I have powder coated a edelbrock intake that was used and abused, but now I can't stop staring at the top of my motor. For a DIY setup, this has surprised myself and friends of the quality it produces. The only mistake I made was not ordering additional powder. I went thru the kit in an afternoon, but everything in my garage is powder coated now haha. Thank you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't be beat for startup Poweder Coat kit! I have a hobart welder and a few other toys but was lacking this one!. I was upgrading my dads utility trailer and wanted to powder coat the rims. This starter kit had great comments on some forums so I purchased it. It is VERY easy to use. I purchased an old kitchen oven to bake and eventually I want to convert a upright freezer to an PC oven. If you simply can't go wrong here. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for home projects I build motorbikes and I like to use this system for my small parts. Its very durable. I had made a mistake on one part and took it to work to sandblast so I could redo it and it took forever to get it off while I also had some painted parts that cleaned up very quickly. I must say, this finish is very durable and will hold up extremely well on and off road

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Should do what you need. I've done a few pieces so far with my kit, i've only used the reflective chrome, high gloss black, and light ford blue powder. they all came out pretty nice. sometimes on larger pieces you have to move the ground around a little to get the powder to stick. The system did great for what i was doing. (Valve covers, Fan, Pulleys, air cleaner.)

Is this a system that will stand up to Brake Calipers? I read there is a difference between coatings. Please guide me through the selection process

Asked by: GT Man
Normal powders like we carry will stand up to brake caliper heat (for normal driving)

Hello, I have been recently been thinking about getting my rims/ hubs on my 2007 Kawasaki Kx 85 dirtbike powder coated but I do not want to spend all that money. I would like to purchase some hotcoat, what is the best for me?

Asked by: Stuart92
I would recommend you look into our Dual Voltage Elite Kit. http://www.eastwood.com/dual-voltage-hotcoat-powder-coat-gun-elite-kit.html This kit provides what you need to get started powder coating, minus the oven, compressor and part to powder coat. The dual voltage feature is nice for overcoming Faraday Cage Effect, which sometimes occurs when spraying powder into corners or recesses (the powder repels and does not coat into the recessed areas). Once you coat the wheels on your dirtbike, I'm sure you will find countless other items you will want to coat.

About Hotcoat Starter KIt

Besides the 11,000-watt HotCoat® gun itself, you'll also get 8-oz. bottles of 4 popular colors, an extra bottle with lid, high-temp. fiberglass masking tape to protect bolt threads and studs from powder, high-temp. silicone plug assortment to plug holes, plus a disposable in-line air filter to make sure only clean dry air gets to your gun.

Why powder coat? Because it gives you one of the most economical, color-durable, and longest-lasting finishes available, and this kit allows you to powder coat at home! 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 (4 are 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 5-10 psi compressed air source and dedicated electric oven (or toaster oven). Imported.

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.
