Welcome to the complete Powder Coating guide. My name is Sean and here I will discuss in detail how to powder coat. If you don't know what powder coating is, learn here. The main focus of this guide is diy powder coating at home but there will be plenty of information here for anyone that powder coats.
|Only a few weeks after I received my first powder coating gun and no prior experience, I took this shifter assembly from this condition..|
|to this condition. This guide will teach you how to achieve the same results.|
What will set this site apart from other powder coating how-to's is:
It will never be done, this will be an ongoing guide explaining the equipment and materials needed, the basics, technique, tricks, and my personal experiences since I started powder coating.
A lot of the current powder coating guides out there do not offer much more info than the instructions that came with my first powder coating gun. Other more detailed guides I have read seemed to be aimed at large powder coating factories which use different tools than you would as a custom powder coater. I would like to guide you through every step of learning to powder coat, from not even having a powder coating gun, to getting amazing results on everything that you powder coat.
I remember when I first started powder coating and how frustrating it was to search through 20 websites every time I had a problem. I had to search all over the internet, reading 10 different articles and 100 forum posts, only to have to do it all over again the next time I had a problem. This site will soon include information on all aspects of powder coating.
I am in no way claiming to be an expert on powder coating. There are people that have been coating for 20 years, I have been doing it for 2 years. It has been a very involved, hundreds of hours of research, type of 2 years. My main goal is to make it as easy as possible for someone to learn this hobby at home. I welcome any questions or tips. If you are having a specific issue that I have not answered yet, leave a comment below and I will address your question personally. If you are a powder coater and you see something you disagree with or know of a better way, please, feel free to tell me. After all, I want this to be "THE" Resource and I want it to be as accurate as possible.
