If You Can’t Measure It

This edition of Technology Interchange is all about calculations. In our daily life as powder coating professionals, it is essential to quantify everything from quality to cost to color to size and beyond. A wise person once said (probably more than once), “if you can’t measure it, you don’t know it.” Let’s get started.

Q: Hey Joe,
I get all my powders from the same West Coast supplier; however, they surprised me today. I’m not sure if I am curing incorrectly or not but their technical data sheet says, “Coat at room temperature, place in oven at 400⁰F. Leave in oven UNTIL the part being coated is also 400⁰F, then at that point set the cure time.” Is that correct for most mainstream powders? Hobbyist powders seem to be 450⁰F flash then typically 400⁰F for 20 minutes.
