EASTWOOD LAUNCHES DUAL-VOLTAGE POWDER COATING SYSTEM

Breakthrough Professional Performing Refinishing System For Restoration Hobbyists and Enthusiasts

Pottstown, PA (PRWEB) November 5, 2009 - The Eastwood Company launched its revolutionary http://www.eastwood.com/dual-voltage-hotcoat-powder-gun.html "Dual-Voltage" HotCoat Powder Coating Gun that delivers true dual-circuit power for greater powder-transfer efficiency, less overspray, better coverage and smoother finishes at a fraction of the cost of industrial equipment.

"The Dual-Voltage Corona Charge design utilizes exclusive Eastwood Pulse Technology to deliver a consistent, hard-hitting flow of power, providing the maximum powder coverage and adhesion possible. This powder coating system produces the ultimate, professional-quality, powder-coat finish,” said Joe Richardson, Eastwood's Auto Restoration Expert.

"The Dual-Voltage Corona Charge design utilizes exclusive Eastwood Pulse Technology to deliver a consistent, hard-hitting flow of power, providing the maximum powder coverage and adhesion possible. This powder coating system produces the ultimate, professional-quality, powder-coat finish,” said Joe Richardson, Eastwood's Auto Restoration Expert.

The True Dual-Voltage capability of the new Eastwood unit allows the hobbyist to select a normal setting to deliver a High-Frequency 15,000 Volt charge at 15 micro amps to the powder for most powder coating jobs. For larger areas, the Ultra-High-Frequency 25,000 Volt charge at 18 micro amps to the powder produces show-quality, smooth finishes. The High Voltage also provides solid multiple coat coverage or allows the creation of custom effects, even with high metallic content powders.

Tight recessed corners and tube sections can now be quickly and efficiently coated using 15,000 volts while minimizing the Faraday cage effect, that is, the phenomenon by which charged particles are prevented from entering recessed areas due to the curvature of electric force lines to the nearest grounded surface.

"Time saving is an additional advantage to the Dual-Voltage Powder Coating System," commented Richardson. The enthusiast or hobbyist can now coat a part and return it to service in less than an hour. Any metal part than can withstand the 400 degree F (204 degree C) cure temperature can now be powder coated utilizing an electric oven or Eastwood's Infrared Light Cure System.

"Other 'switchable' systems do not have true dual-circuit power supplies. Eastwood's Dual-Voltage gun produces powder transfer efficiency equal to or better than systems costing four times more," Richardson remarked.

Eastwood markets unique tools and supplies for repair, restoration, and modification of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Founded in 1978, Eastwood constantly strives to develop new products to serve the home automotive hobbyist, individuals and organizations focused on restoration and revival of automobiles and motorcycles.
