How much thickness the powder coat adds to the part?

Not much thicker than paint but way more durable

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.
