Powder coating at home-question

Greetings.

I know the parts should be baked at around 400 degrees in an oven,what I'm wondering is if you could take a tiger torch and heat up the coating so that it would flow.This way larger parts could also be done

Sure would beat having to use the oven in the kitchen

Am I cracked out of it here?

Thanks

I doubt it, there is no way you could control the temp good enough IMHO.

Find yourself a used electric oven and put it in the garage. You should be able to find one cheap or even free. Talk to one of the guys at your local appliance store. They usually trash the old one they pick up.

Got an old wall mount GE electric from Habitat for Humanities store for $20.00. Put it in my Well house (shed over well).

Wired 220 from the well pump and started powder coating. I sampled over eight powder sources and believe it or not Summit sells the best for my use. Easy application, little if any out gassing. great flow and gloss.

Your woman will throw you out if you use a kitchen stove. The stuff stunks and is flammable. I tried to "touch up" a part when learning. Started spraying powder in oven while at about 400 deg. The gun sparked against one of the parts and I lost a bunch of arm hair!!

And if you need to do parts larger than a common electric range, there are lots of sites on the web showing home made extensions you can build for your oven or home made boxes with heating elements installed. Just google around and you'll get lots of good (and cheap) ideas for how to do larger parts.

It would most likely blow the powder off the part and if it didn't you would have poor adhesion as the powder would melt before the part got up to temperature.
