    About Original Hotcoat Powder Coating Gun

    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). Imported.

Fill cup no more than 1/4 to 1/3 full, and wave the nozzle in a circular motion about 4-6" from the surface best results. Do not apply powder into a small boxed area.


    FAQs

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

    (Q) How can I improve transfer efficiency?
    (A) The 10128 HotCoat High-Performance Deflector greatly improves transfer efficiency. Use the Standard Deflector for getting powder in recessed areas.


    Safety / Instructions

    Use Disposable Dust Mask (22055) when handling or applying powder. Powder,like common flour, suspended in the air in high concentrations can be explosive. 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, like our SAS Bandit Respirator (11455 or 11456), cartridges when curing or inspecting flow out progress.

    Hi, I ordered this gun because it was inexpensive and thought that it could last me a year or so... The gun worked for 2 seconds before shutting down and never coming back. Eastwood made the exchange for another one witch costs me 12$ in shipping back. I actually had the chance to experiment with two brackets i made. Then on a third bracket, the gun wasn't working anymore. I m not even sure its still under warranty. Anyway i willl have to pay shipping again so don't waste your time on this product.

    Since new, the electrode that charges the powder was slightly bent forcing the little tubes to one side resulting in a non-uniform spray. Certainly use-able, but very annoying.

    The process works very well and the end result is great. However, while tapping the gun to remove the little tubes inside for cleaning, the nozzle actually broke off from the handle. This was noted in another review as well. Bottom line, works well but handle gently.

    I have coated several pieces for my baja 5b rc buggy and i can't get full coverage no matter what i do the gun seems to act like there is no ground (i would like to add that these pieces have been sand blasted then wire wheeled and de greased) so if you want to powder coat i highley recomend that you get the dual voltage gun

    Bought this gun after being charged a $120 buckets to powder coat a few small items. Went and bought a cheap used kitchen oven. Powder coated my first few items for a 59 Ford I'm restoring. They came out amazing. The process is fast an almost fool proof. If you prep the part correctly and what I mean by that is remove all rust, paint and grease then the actual powder coating is simple with this gun. The powder is fairly cheap and goes along way. There is very little waste and practically to smell. Your only limited by what will fit in your oven. Highly recommend this gun if your are restoring something.
    Leaks around cap x2 (Posted on 5/7/11)

    I bought the kit with all the goodies and gave powder coating a whirl.

    The whole process is really amazing and the end result gives a professional results for the DIY-er.

    Out of the box the darn thing leaked from the cap. I followed the instructions and viewed Eastwood videos several times to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Called tech support and was told to send it back.

    Forward three weeks later, the second Hotcoat gun leaks from the cap too! Though not as bad as gun #1, I cannot use this as my primary gun. It is now delegated for clear and candy coats.

    When I sent #1 back, I purchased the dual voltage Hotcoat gun and it does not leak. It works great.

    My only other gripe would be the flimsy grounding clip on both Hotcoat units.

    My recommendation is to skip this gun entirely and go for the dual voltage gun. It's work the few extra dollars.

    Made it impossible to use. Since the powder cup is pressurized, any leak causes powder to go everywhere.

    I purchased this product the 9th of januaury, excited I promptly read the directions, went out to the garage and successfully PC my first item, a carb linkage bracket. I had already gotten an oven and all set up.

    On my 2nd -6th attempt the powder would not stick to my parts. I re-prepped, made sure my ground was solid Grounded to earth at the generator transfer switch). I "tested" for the blue spark.....nadda.....since the product carries a 30 day warranty its not covered, just as well I suppose the internals are made in Taiwan and an internet search resulted in again...nadda....for replacemetn parts....100% satisfaction....yeah..uhuh...I would not recommend this product or rely on Eastwoods satifaction gaurantee again......
