Posted on Thursday, June 1, 2017

The PCI Coatings Comparison Calculator has been updated.  Ensure that you have the most up-to-date app, along with a link to upcoming PCI events, by following the directions below.

To obtain the new version, remove the old app from your phone and go to the Apple Store or the Google Play Store to download the new version.  When you search, use the words “Coatings Comparison Calculator” and you should see the app with the PCI logo.  You can also use these links:




“All powder coatings are not created equal so this app is a simple tool to help in evaluating and comparing the material cost of a powder coating versus a liquid coating and for comparing one powder coating to another,” says Craig Dietz with Axalta Coating Systems. 


Using information such as volume solids, application or reclaim efficiency, specific gravity, product cost and applied thickness, the app calculates and compares the cost of each material.  It offers a visual comparison between powder and liquid material cost, or the app can be used to evaluate each coating material individually.  There are many other advantages to using a powder coating finish and links to additional information highlighting these advantages can be accessed from within the app.  Additionally, view upcoming PCI events, simply by using the app. 

"The Coatings Comparison Calculator is great tool from a reputable site. I have it saved on my favorites tool bar and will be visiting often when I am quoting jobs,” states Allison Lee of Coatings Plus in Boise, ID.
