How many pounds do I need to paint a 2008 Ford edge

Question by Support on Jul 19, 2018
ANSWER: People do not typically powder coat cars, and for good reason, it must be baked at 400F. It would take and lot of work to strip the car of anything that could melt in that heat, however if you are still interested let us know and we will help you figure out how much would be needed.

Answer by Support on Apr 10, 2018

I’ve sprayed this color and I get a little variance in color between parts sometimes. Is it the mil thickness of the base or the clear that effects how dark this color comes out?

Question by Support on Mar 28, 2018
ANSWER: Mil thickness is important for both the base and the clear. Make sure you are hitting the recommended mil thickness targets for both. Average combined mil thicknesses for both the Malbec and the clear would be about 4.5-5.5 mils. Most often, color variance is due to either the clear being too thin or not enough cure time. If you are coating parts of varying thicknesses and the heavier parts appear more purple rather than deep red, it would most likely be a curing issue. Using fluidizing hopper is also beneficial to ensure the powder mixture is even and consistent. NIC Support

Can I paint an entire car with this

Question by Support on Mar 27, 2018
ANSWER: You could but it probably be more difficult than painting. Because powder coating must cure at high temperatures, every thing that would melt or be damaged by the 400F curing temps would need to be removed including any/all wiring in the car. NIC Support

Can you use this to coat motorcycle exhaust?

Question by Support on Mar 23, 2018
ANSWER: We would not recommend using powder coating for use on exhaust components. Powder coating is usually only good for about 225-250F. For high temp applications we recommend using CERAKOTE High Temp coatings. NIC Support

I have chrome plated parts that I want to coat with this color. What sort of prep is required for the chrome or am I better off to strip the chrome and use a base coat? Thanks

Question by Support on Mar 12, 2018
ANSWER: It is very difficult to strip chrome all the way off but for the best adhesion it would be good to at least lightly blast the chrome. The more of a toothy surface profile you can make the better the powder will adhere, making for a more durable coating. If blasting or etching the chrome plating is not an option, then at the very least the chrome needs to be free of all wax, grease, oils etc. or anything that will inhibit adhesion. NIC Support

How much would I need to paint a 1968 Lincoln

Question by Support on Feb 23, 2018
ANSWER: The best way to figure the amount of powder need for a job is to estimate the square footage (L x W x H= sq.ft.) of the job. Keeping in mind that 1 pound of powder will cover roughly 25-30 square feet. Divide the total square footage by 25-30. It's probably safer to divide by 25 so that you don't order too little. That having been said, powder coating a car is a lot different than painting one, it's not as simple as just masking parts off that you don't want coated. You will actually have to strip or remove all parts that can melt, crack or explode (wiring, plastic, rubber, fuel tank etc.) in the 400 degree baking oven. NIC Support
