“Can your products be used in powder coat?”
YES! You don’t have to be the world’s best powder coater to understand how to effectively use our products…
You can effectively use our products in powder coat clears, because they are effect pigment powders and are best when used in a base coat-clear coat scenario. The mixture of our pearls in colored powders is not recommended, since pearls may be drowned by the colors, but HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY sprayed with favorable results.
Since pearls are so versatile, you can achieve rich to subtle accents by adjusting the amount in your mixture. We recommend using 1 Nick (25g jar) of our pearl in 1 to 5 lbs. of clear powder. You will have a very strong effect when using in 1 lb. of powder, but a very faint pearl effect in a 5 lb. mixture.
When it comes to our metal flakes, we recommend our .004″ flakes because they are the smallest & thinnest available. While you’ll need to sand & re-clear, this will minimize the orange peel effect if you have one of those customers who needs something rushed. Since most of our flake is safe up to 375°F using a low temp cure clear is best.
REMEMBER, almost ALL OF OUR DRY PRODUCTS WILL WORK WELL IN POWDER COATINGS!
Give us a try and you won’t go back…
