    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.

    I have had this gun for about a year now. I have used it on around 30 different items & 3-sets of rims and it still till this day works fine. Never had a problem with it but now fixing to step up and purchase the double voltage. My buddy has it and wont stop giving me a hard time cause he has the bigger gun but i will let everyone know how it turns out as well. I am sure it will be fine.
    It is Cheap product. Eastwood edorses this? (Posted on 9/2/13)

    This is the second gun in 6 months. The gun is all plastic and glued together. It comes apart after the first few uses. Hard to believe that Eastwood endorses this. I have bough from them for almost 20 years. But I guess having quality products has lost it way over the years. they seem to have become the Harbor Freight on line company. Know for CHEAP made in China products. please take a look at these products before you put your name on them. Surely since you have videos on this gun you have seen the short comings of this product. But yet you still sell it as an Eastwood product?

    From the day I pulled it out of the box, this gun has sprayed more powder out of the side of the cap than it does out of the nozzle. Somehow, my small parts still ended up with a decent finish. I didn't realize just how bad it was until I watched the youtube video posted on the product page. My gun has never sprayed powder anything like the one in the video! I was about to order the "rebuild kit", but fortunately read a review that the kit is just an assortment of fluidizing attachments and does not include the tubes shown in the picture. Nice try Eastwood! I'm going to order a higher end powdercoating system from elsewhere. I can't say it has been a pleasure doing business with you.

    I'm new to the powder coat scene with this being my first gun I'm very pleased. Price, quality and ease of use are important to a newby... Eastwood hit the vital spots. Compare this system to the gun from a freight store... I'll take this setup. Much better in my opinion.

    The assembly of the product looks a little less than the price, but the functionality is great. I wish it had a build in down regulator. Easy to use, works great.

    I bought this to powder coat a product I had developed, this purchase took my product another step up in professionalism.

    This is easier and cleaner to use than rattlecans. The first use pays for the gun in itself. I love saving myself tons of money. It is fun coating parts that I can proudly take credit for the results I created myself. The instructions are great. You have to go out of your way to get undesirable results. This is my favorite purchase I have made in years!
    Inexpensive, cheaply made, but gets the job done. (Posted on 11/22/12)

    I bought this gun back in 2006 and have used it to coat hundreds of parts from screws to giant braces and brackets. The gun works great if you can keep it from breaking. I've re-glued the tube to the gun handle multiple times until I finally decided to install set screws to make it permanent. That's when I found the internal piece was broken. I could probably make a new piece out of steel, but it might be better to just buy a new gun.

    Tips: When the powder doesn't stick to your part, try touching the electrode tip to the part to draw a spark. It seems to help the powder stick as if it establishes a path of conductivity. Also, pre-heat the parts to 200-250F. Make sure they are clean and grease free. I use brake cleaner because it is available and cheap.

    Remember to bake everything for 20m minimum once the powder flows. Use an IR thermometer to verify temp. It's OK to bake longer. I shoot for 30m on critical parts. Of course, beware of clears as they can be over-baked. Pre-heat heavy parts like intake manifolds as they take too long to come up to temp and may not allow the paint to flow out completely before it starts curing. This will result in paint that doesn't stick well, has a textured/wrinkled finish, or other problems.

    I basically started up my business with this gun!! made more than 10X the money I spent. absolutely no issues until I pulled the ground from the plug. I have powdered over 200 pieces in a week with the single voltage gun and had success with candy colors as well. If you clean the equipment and take care of it, you will really get your moneys worth
