For those that use a powdercoating system, I have a question. Do you use alot of different colors and if so how do you clean the equipment to prevent cross contamination??? Thanks.

John, what did you find out? How difficult is it to switch colours?

Not difficult. I have saved different cups so I won’t mix the colors in that part of the gun. As far as the gun itself, just blow it out with compressed air. What I will eventually do though is bet me another Harbor Freight gun because they are inexpensive and use this just for clear coating.

I did not get any responses to my question so I tried this on my own. Hope that answes it for you. Take care.

Do you use low temperature powder coating on wood? If so, can you point me toward a source?

I spent quite a bit of time searching for low temperature (wood capable) powder coat and came up with nothing useful. Many responses on it existing.

Steve.

Steve I am sorry I do not use powdercoating for wood. I only do metal items. Maybe someone will jump in and help you out.

Steve -

Powder coating puts opposite charges on the paint and the material to be coated so the paint will adhere while it’s being baked on. How would you put a charge on wood?
