    What can be powder coated?

    Any conductive metal object that can hold an electrostatic charge and withstand the heat of the curing process can be powder coated. Powder can be applied to intricate surfaces and still maintain a uniform finish across the entire piece. In addition, glass and certain woods can also be powder coated. For 30 years, powder coating has been the finish of choice for a superior, more colorful, longer lasting and more durable finish. (read more)
  • A powder coat is a painting process that involves charging dried paint particles and baking them onto a surface, usually metal. The baking temperatures needed to get the powder to fuse properly can be up to 500 degrees. Many firearms have powder coats factory installed but you can do it yourself with the proper equipment and preparation. Consult your gun manufacturer to make sure the powder coating gun barrel and trigger mechanism can withstand these temperatures before powd (read more)
  • A. Required air volume for the PGC1 is 3 SCFM under normal operation. However, the unit is capable of flowing 5 SCFM. An MPS-1F unit (includes gun, pump, control unit, 45lb hopper and accessories) and may require up to 10 SCFM. The ideal operating pressure is 0-65 psi. Minimum input pressure is 75psi  (read more)
  • Voltage and current have an inverse relationship when there is a limited amount of energy supply. This is the case with electrostatic powder application guns. Voltage is electrical potential to do work, while current is measuring the movement of electricity, or work being done. Once the potential is used, it becomes current; thus, there is less potential or energy left. Both voltage and current are useful settings and indicators for electrostatic guns.
