Vintage Modular Race Wheel Restoration

That leaves out all other non conductive items, can they be powder coated too?

Hotcoat Powder Coating

Powder coating gives you one of the most economical, color-durable, and longest-lasting finishes available... and the Eastwood HotCoat powder coating system makes it about as easy as it can get! DIY powder coating produces surfaces that are far more resistant to chipping, scratches and wear than other finishes, and the color selection is virtually unlimited, with high and low gloss, metallic, and clear finishes available.

The colors of our UV-resistant powder coat kits stay bright and vibrant longer, and our powder coating supplies give you all the help you need, including powder coat paint guns, silicone plugs, hanging hooks, spray booths and more.

Powder coating is becoming a popular alternative to painting, and Eastwood has been at the forefront of that transformation. Eastwood's HotCoat® Powder Coating System helped revolutionize the home workshops of restoration enthusiasts in the '90s. Our equipment and supplies give hobbyists the ability to apply a powder coating easily and affordably. With Eastwood, you can apply a color that is better than paint. It becomes a protective second skin, like a coat of armor for your vehicle.


Since 1978 Eastwood has helped the DIY community with working on project cars and restoration jobs. Our products have helped bring professional-quality tools and supplies to your home garage, and our powder coating supplies are a perfect example.


Eastwood Powder Coat Supplies

For the best combination of color, safety and affordability, use the Eastwood HotCoat powder coating system for your next DIY powder job. Powder coating allows you to apply thicker, more uniform finishes with less hazardous waste than liquid paints. It also produces more dynamic effects and takes less time to dry. Our selection of powder coat equipment has everything you need for a stunning outcome at a low price.


Powder Coat Guns

Choosing the right powder coat gun is the first step to success. The Original DIY Powder Coat Gun System is an excellent all-around solution, and  the Dual-Voltage Powder Coat Gun has two different settings for more precise use. Powder coating starter kits include a gun and various accessories for those new to the technique. You can save by ordering a powder gun with a curing oven or compressor.


Vibrant Powder Colors

How do you want your vehicle to look? Whether you have spent hours upon hours dreaming about a color,  or if you are  open for ideas, Eastwood has nearly 100 different HotCoat powder colors to help bring your vision to life. These finishes can be applied within an hour and won't chip or fade over time. In addition to a variety of lights and darks, we make powders with flat, gloss, metallic, and textured effects.


Prep & Accessories

Make sure you have everything you need to get your surface ready and apply a dazzling finish. Use Eastwood powder coating strippers and cleaners to remove old paint, powder, wax and grease that can hinder your work. If there are blemishes or irregularities, high-temperature lab metal is the perfect solution for permanent repairs. Accessories such as masking tapes, storage bottles, powder coating polish and beginner's handbooks will get you up to speed.


Curing Equipment

A key part of doing the job right with powder coating: High heat is needed to properly cure your work. Use a powder coating curing oven for small projects or aim an infrared curing lamp at larger parts and housings. We carry light stands for holding and directing your lamps and non-contact thermometers to know when items are safe to handle.
