A customer brought this piece in today and wonder what it would cost to powder coat it. They are currently painting them, but the paint can’t with stand the 600deg heat. The paint discolors and eventually peels off. The piece in the photo is a painted version. I was wondering the following
1. How well will a standard TGIC powder hold up to the heat?
2. How much to charge, given that they could be sending me @400 of these a month. The one thing is that I would be getting them directly from the machine shop, so the prep would be a wash, outgas, pretreatment and powder. If I build the right rack I estimate that I could get @50-75 in my oven at a time.
Look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts and comments.
