Powder coat system

Powder coat system

Sears has a powder coater for $159 – Thanks James!

Apply a durable, protective coating to any metal component quickly, easily and safely. Coating is electrostatically applied, then just place coated item in a 400 deg. oven to cure and you’re done. Fast and environmentally friendly, coating is chip and chemical resistant. System features internal air generation (no compressor needed.) Variable speed switch.

Powder-coating can be applied to iron, steel, aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, and also chrome-plated surfaces. The Craftsman Powder Coat system will allow you to obtain professional results at home at a fraction of the cost. Superior to aerosol and other liquid coatings in flexibility, corrosion, and chemical resistance. Over spray is simply swept up and disposed of in household refuse. The system includes the accessories, application gun, and detailed instructions. Powder-coating, like other high-quality coatings, can only be applied over a bare metal surface. Removing corrosion and old coatings can be easily accomplished with abrasive paper, wire brush, liquid paint stripper, or abrasive blasting. Once removed simply wipe with acetone or paint thinner, allow to dry, and coat. The only components you will need are an object to coat and an extra toaster oven or non food prep conventional oven.
