I’ve recently started powder coating at home with the Eastwood basic powder coating gun. I have done a few parts successfully but today I had a couple issues working on some motorcycle shock absorber parts.
These were bead blasted down to bare metal, cleaned (I used Pre paint prep today), baked for about 20 minutes at 350 and then coated and cured. This is gloss black – the problem is the “fish eye” look all over the part.
I think one issue is my oven isn’t hot enough. I am using a toaster oven for now and I can’t get it over 350 degrees. However, I have had some of the gloss black parts come out nice. I just noticed the vermilion cure temp is 400.
Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am assuming I need to blast these back down to bare metal and start again…I’d like to get it right the second time around.
