Default Custom Powder Kote

Hi all,

I am new in town and do custom powder coating. We specialize in auto and bike parts. Ok, Here is a little bit of info about powder kote that some of you may not know, I didn't. There are over 6,000 different colors to choose from, including metallics, candies, chameleons, iradescents, clears and more. Also its not just glossy anymore, we can do flats and satins as well. Not just smooth anymore, we can do various different textures including wrinkles, viens, leatherettes, sandpaper like and various other textures as well as smooth. Multiple kotes is another option we offer, for example: silver flake clear over your color(orange?) for that little extra sparkle(BTW the silver flake reflects back the color it is over, orange makes the flake look orange). This is only a taste of what is possible, got an idea for something that you want done, contact us and we will let you know if it can be done.







We are a unique powder kote company, because we will do 2-tone and other multiple colors as well as custom designs with powder kote, most companies wont even consider it. Got questions that i havent answered? Post a reply with your question, we will check back often. Or you can always give us a call.

I've never thought about powdercoating a header before. Does it hold up to the heat? Do it provide any level of heat reflection like ceramic or wrapping it does?

That is high temp powder coat good up to 1200 F It holds the heat some but I dont think to the level of wrapping, but if you plan to wrap you may want to have them coated so they dont rust.

Is this stuff different than the powder coat you can apply yourself? The stuff you can do yourself in your over cures at just a couple hundred degrees. Or is it basically cooked so it won't melt back off? It was my understanding it was basically plastic that was melted.

Forgive me if I sound stupid. I'm just trying to learn. lol

This high temp, Im not sure exactly what it is made of but its definately different than normal powder coat. This has a higher cure temp than normal powder coat it also smells much different in the cure cycle. Even regular powder coat once it is cured doesnt remelt, untill you reach its limits, regular powdercoat may start to discolor at about 550 but doenst start to burn off till about 750. And yes if you had the equipment to do it you could DIY.

The diy stuff I was thinking about is the stuff you can get from Sears. Supposedly you can spray it with one of the guns and then you can cure it in a regular household over (although not one used for food).

This is not the same powder as the stuff from sears. And you may have a hard time fitting your header in a normal oven. But for regular stuff that is small sure you could do that, but just beware its not as easy as they make it out to be.

If it will fit in a 3' X 5' X 6' cube I can coat it.

Those look awesome! That color would be perfect on my Typhoon.

What would be the cost of having a set of front and rear C6 Corvette calipers done in that shimmer orange? I believe my brackets are already powder coated black.

How much for 4 stock cherokee wheels coated black? Very minor rust on the rim would probably need to be bead blasted first. I may be able to blast them myself but I don't know if they will fit in my cabinet.

It wont fit in my oven unless your item comes apart. There are places with ovens that big. I will hopefully eventually have one that big, but that wont be till after I move to a bigger shop.


Jim

BTW just curious, what is the item you want done?
