A big boost in sales can be observed after powder coating products like bicycles and motorcycles. Not only is the product more attractive, but powder-coated products will be more resistant to scratches than the typical paint job. Powder coating comprises of ground pigments and resin. This is something that can be done at home, but it is generally a good idea to have a spare oven for powder coating jobs.
Things You'll Need
- Powder coating gun
- Eye protective goggles
- Ventilated workspace
- Oven (use for powder coating only)
Remove your rims.
Place your rims on an oven rack. Evenly space out the rims.
Wearing your protective goggles, apply the powder coat evenly on the rims with your powder coat gun.
Set the oven to about 400 degrees. Place the oven rack containing the rims in the oven. Check the oven after 15 minutes.
Let your parts cool after the paint has visibly baked onto the parts. Don’t forget to turn the oven off. Let your parts cool outside.
Tips & Warnings
- It is a good idea to purchase a spare oven, or find a friend who has one, for powder coating.
