The More You Know
Before purchasing all the equipment you need to know the answers to following questions so you can make an informed decision.

Powder Coating Gun
These guns can be a great tool for your business. You must know the type of material you will be spraying because it makes a difference. The best powder coating gun for organic material is an oscillating dual action gun.
Another option for organic material is the round steam gun. For inorganic material try using a straight stream gun it will create that perfect finish you’re looking for.
If you have a high production volume then you need a gun that can hold a lot of powder so you can save time. The belt-feed pneumatic nail gun is great for large quantities. When it’s crunch time and you need to get a lot done quickly, the airless rotary power spray gun is going to be your best friend.
After the powder has been sprayed it needs to cure. It must be placed in an oven and have constant heat. If it’s too cool the powder won’t stay and if it’s hot it’ll burn it.
The temperature needs to be between 340 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. It is important to note you cannot cure your smaller items in the same oven you cook your food in.
Booths and Ovens
It is suggested that when you purchase your booth and oven that the booth is bigger. When spraying your materials you need to have room to move around in the booth. However, you don’t need that extra space in the oven.

If a job comes and it’s too big for your equipment you just lost money. You should continue your research and read more about the different equipment you may need or want.
After cooling your product is ready for use. That is one of the perks of powder coating guns there is no wait time like there is with paint.
