Powder Coating







I am now officially in the powder coating business. More pictures can be found at this link: Click Here

Little update bump, now have a new much bigger oven and waiting for my new blasting cabinet to get here!

Please let me know if I can help you out. The best way to contact me is by e-mail [email protected] or text/call 605.695.4421

Oven size is 4' x 4' x 6' 6"

Thank you!
Scott


Let me know if I can help you out with your bike/project.

Yes they are...Modified go-cart from when I was a kid. My dad decided he was bored one day and cut it up and move the engine and put a dirt track modified style body on it. Then I lettered it up.

How are you prepping the surfaces to accept the powder and didn't you get a powder shadow from the hangar in the first couple of pics?

I have an almost 4 foot wide bead blaster. So I bead blast them and then spray the part down with a liquid cleaner and air blow it dry. If a bead blaster doesn't get the parts clean enough, I have some new liquid stripper that will take about anything off.

The red hangers came out great, I just took the pictures with my cell phone so they don't look as good.

The blue pulley in the pictures was just a test pieces so I wasn't worried about the wire mark on it.

I do have some dirt bike parts I did, but I keep forgetting to take some pictures of them. I'll try to do that tomorrow.

Parts look good - just out of curiosity; whose powder and guns are you using?

Nah - used to work for a company that did surface treatments - Henkel Surface Tehnologies - dealt in metal pre-treatment for powder coating, zinc and iron phosphates, alkaline cleaners, adhesives, pH neutral sealers etc etc...
Still have friends in the industry selling powder and guns (paint and paint guns - not coke and Uzis )

There are ways that you could apply an iron phosphate coating to your metal parts before powder coating that might be cheaper for you than bead blasting if you're interested - depending on what your costs are to bead blast. I'm not too familar with that process, can you reclaim the medium or is it one use only?

That would be kind of neat work, more behind the scenes.

I use IP after I bead blast the parts for a cleaner, rise off with water and then blow the part dry.

Can't really use it for a step instead of blasting due to rust, paint and other coating on the part first. Would only work good if the part is already stripped basically or chrome. Or else you would have problems with durability.

I use a blasting cabinet for most of my parts, which is a reclaiming setup. If they are to big I have to blast them outside with my pressure pot blaster.

Fair enough - sounds like you've got it covered.
Any problems with flash rusting after you rinse the cleaner?

I'm always open to new ways to do stuff. So I appreciate the info.

Not so far. I rise the IP off with water and then blow the part dry right away and then put in the oven most of the time to make sure the part is 100% dry.
