Powder Coating provides a tough, durable, beautiful surface for a variety of materials.


A curing oven is in the beginning stages of being built.[1] We already have a cabinet, temperature controller, thermocouple, and relays to run the unit. However, the unit is still far from complete.

We also have sand blasters and other methods to prep materials, and the powder guns to coat.
