In this class you will learn the correct set up, use, and clean up of the powder coating equipment, including the powder coating oven.

Each participant will powder coat and cure a metal design that they will be able to take home with them.

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals.
