SEFishy can Powdercoat!

There seemed to be a lot of interest in my other thread for me to get a few markers done for people.

I run an automotive repair shop with my brother that also does powdercoating, along with an Eastwood setup at my house for my side job of small engine build and rebuild (think race go kart).

Im prepared to try and help those out who have lowend markers and dont want to dump $100+ into a super nice custom finish.

However that low price means im not going to strip old powder coats and finishes or do custom blends and patterns. I will do a degreasing bath and an alcohol bath to remove oils and of course paint. Also I am not dissembling markers. I only want what needs to be coated

I can coat over anno easily, however tuff paint such as 98 customs will have to be stripped. Baking the shells will remove all the coating with ease.

Without a perfectly bare or sand blasted base metal the powdercoat will be tinted.

With all that said i will discuss the options you have with the colors i have currently and what you need done.

As a sort of baseline im looking at about $15 to $20 a coat with some combinations requireing several coats to get the effect.

For example if you just one matte black and nothing else its a single coat process.

If you want the veiny silver/black, blue or orange/red types it will require atleast two coats.

All metallic flakes are two coats. I can do it in one if you want a grippy type finish.

I have about 20 or so colors to choose from right now. Nothing crazy fancy yet. Though i am trying to get a hold of some glow in the dark and neon green/yellow in to try that out.

Keep in mind i have a busy day job and these will be done one at a time in order that i receive them. I have not interest and having a pile of jobs to do with a long list of people waiting.

Lets get a discussion going so i can try and clarify everything here.

CURRENT POWDER LIST:
polar white
disco pink - top coat
starburst galaxy- top coat
Frosted Hunter green
intense blue - top coat
honey red - top coat
ink black- high gloss
black frost - black/silver hybrid
rust clay
super silver - lots of metal flakes mixed in
black silver - speckled black
subtle gold - Mild metal flake
redwood green
emergency red
matte black
semi gloss white

Please excuse my ignorance, but the stock powder coat on my Azodin KP3 is crap is scratches off really easy. Does your stuff hold up well? I would be tempted to strip it and send it to you if that is the case.

no factory powder coat should ever scratch off. are you sure it's not that rubbery paint type stuff used on tippmanns?

Definitely interested. From what I understand, you don't need it completely stripped/sandblasted/mediablasted, but it will affect the tint and possibly the smoothness? You're ok with just powdercoating over old coats/anno?

yes I can coat over anno and unprepared metal but the outcome is unpredictable. here is two images that shows this in action. this is vibrant blue put over my silver/black. the bright blue is what the powder looks like when sprayed.

it came out that dark. had it been a polished metal under it a much brighter bright blue would be the result.

basicly the better job you can do at stripping the better it will look

Does it affect the smoothness of the coat? Any other issues that might come up?

here is two extreme examples of how a SINGLE coat of powdercoat reacts. even with busted metal the coat still held up. there is always an option to add a clear coat layer much like a car would have that can protect the undercoat.

i don't have any right as it's not typically something we do, but I can always order it.

.....also if someone wants more examples I can beat this body up more....and if anyone wants a really beat up sl68 I'll take $20 for it : )

yes. anything left on the bare metal will show. you can not use powder coat to cover scratches and dents in metal. it is possible with an epoxy resin base layer but that's out of scope for paintball use.

the coat normally lays flat unless there is metal flake or a texture put in it. that can be made smooth with a clear coat. or left "grippy"
