Re: paint versus powder coat
Yesterday at 09:46 PM
I have powder coated the last few pumps that I have done. I can weigh in on a few things when it comes to that. I use a product made by Tiger Drylac called “epo strong” it’s a two part epoxy that can be applied, left to cure, and then sanded. It works similar to body filler but can be powder coated over. It will take the heat of the cure. I have used it to fill in imperfections in castings as well as corrosion damage.I find that powder coating works well when used with a out gas forgiving powder primer before the application of your powder top coat. You get a good intercoat adhesion with some added protection for outdoor service. With properly prepared body panels you can also have the entire coating process completed within the day and be assembling your pump in the evening.
