Eastwood PCS-250 Dual Voltage Powder Coating Gun

Product Overview:

Description

PCS-250 Powder Coating Gun

The Eastwood PCS-250 Dual-Voltage HotCoat™ Powder Coating Gun gives you complete coverage from tight areas to large surfaces while operating on standard 120v household current. This innovative system will allow you to achieve the benefits of powder coating small parts instead of coating them with paint. This new and improved dual-voltage system gives you the capability to coat small areas using the low 15kv setting or coat large areas using the high-voltage setting 25kv. All you need is a compressed air source (5-10 PSI from a portable tank with a regulator or a compressor) to power your gun, an electric oven or toaster oven to cure the finish and a well-ventilated workspace in which to do your coating. This new and improved gun features color-coded cabling, larger ground clamp, increased trigger room and a clear bottle so you can see the powder color and fluidizing action.

Features:

  • Extremely durable finish
  • Coat and cure in under an hour!
  • Easy to apply
  • Quick color changes
  • Economical
  • Operates on standard 120v / 60Hz household current
  • Versatility with two settings for improved coverage
  • Low 15,000-volt setting
  • High 25,000-volt setting for multi-coat coverage over larger areas
  • Increased powder adhesion
  • Minimal overspray
  • Color-Coded cables for easy setup
  • More trigger-room for additional comfort
  • Larger ground clamp
  • Clear bottle allows you to see powder color, level and fluidizing action
  • Larger internal passages for improved powder flow
  • Refined power supply for more consistent coverage and powder-build

Warranty

One Year Manufacturer's Defect Warranty.

Designed, engineered and tested to Eastwood's specifications.

FAQs

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

(Q) What are the electrical requirements?
(A) This HotCoat Gun requires 110-125VAC, 2 amps at 50-60 Hz. Can be used with a voltage transformer such as 220-240VAC to 110-125VAC as long as the transformer can handle 2 amps.

Safety Information

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.

Application Tips

Advantages of Powder Coating

The PCS-250 Dual-Voltage HotCoat gun is one of the best powder coating guns on the market today. 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 over-sprayed powder. This powder can be reused as well if it's not contaminated. Eastwood powders contain no environmentally harmful solvents so you can be planet-conscious as well. HotCoat powder coating requires a 5-10 psi compressed air source and a dedicated electric oven (or toaster oven).

Powder Coat in Your Own Garage

Owning a dual-voltage electric powder coating gun means you can apply this technique to springs, valve covers, tri-flow radiators, vehicle body panels and anything else that needs a quality finish. One quick-change empty powder bottle is included and you can easily add more. The tool is designed to our exact specifications with a handheld activation switch, air inlet, removable diverter tip and grounding system.

What’s the difference between the old Eastwood gun and the newest updated gun?

Asked by: enrique94
The new Powder coating gun is an improved and more durable unit. It has a newly designed handle that creates more room for your fingers as well as more room to mount the bottle. There is a new larger ground clamp. The internal passages have been increased in size the improve powder flow out and the new bottle is clear so you can more easily see the powder color and level.

It appears in videos you are supposed to attach the diverter tip specifically for low voltage, 15Kv setting (responsible for corners and crevices), but why? Why is diverter tip required for 15Kv? Why can't it be used for 25Kv setting also? Explain purpose

Asked by: Bennett
The diverter can be used on either setting. it is designed to created a gentle cloud of powder around the piece with out blowing the powder off. when you remove the diverter you have a greater possibility of over powdering or blowing the powder off.

how can i cure the powder paint without a oven? for example a car frame is too large to cure in a oven

Asked by: ismael
Eastwood has these glow like heaters where you can do a large frame. A friend of mine did his frame for his GTO, and he used stainless bolts and nuts. He drives it all summer long, here in Northern Michigan. And it looks like the very same day he done it. So you’ll need to check out Eastwood’s Ovens that will do sections of your frame at a time. Go to there powder coating section and you just might see these bake powder coating units.

Can you explain the differences/improvements with this model over the old Dual Voltage Gun (item #11676)?

Asked by: Justin
A lot of the improvements are visual for this gun such as the clear cup to better see powder level and a sleeker look all around and even more room in the trigger area for users with larger hands to easily use. However, there is an improved pickup system as well as a few other internal improvements as well to make the user experience more pleasurable.
