How much thickness the powder coat adds to the part?
Title: Re: Powder coating
Post by: Rd Todd on 05/27/18 10:27PM
Not much thicker than paint but way more durable
Title: Re: Powder coating
Post by: FastMoto on 05/29/18 09:51AM
Depending on the process and applicator but thickness could range from .002" and all the way up to .010" (or more). There are ISO/ASTM standards but it applies for aerospace/defense industries. If done properly, thickness should be around .002-.003 (or so) and will provide a nice durable coat for cosmetic and protection purposes.

Any threads and bearing surfaces should be taped-up prior to PC.

Powder coat looks nice and even.. factory quality!

Do you still do bike detailing, or will you be focusing more on painting full time?

Hey Mr Todd.  I will hopefully have a metal piece going to use for a passenger seat rack that I'd like to powdercoat.  Will message you or let me know if you have time or if I can buy material and bring to you

Some bits ready for assembly

I see you have same Harbor freight lift I have

Mine has been leaking oil ever since I got it, now I can't raise it to a second socket level, it raises just enough to fit bar in first socket

Looking at the piston I don't really see how I can refill it, any ideas?

Title: Re: Powder coating
Post by: Rd Todd on 08/08/18 08:58PM
I know its a pain and the tools are not always quality they have a great return program, When mine goes gonna refit it to an air lift.
