“I currently spray 0.75 mil of an inorganic zinc powder with a potassium silicate liquid onto wheel abraded steel plate that is rolled horizontally through the paint booth at 14 ft a minute. The zinc particles are between 6 and 8 microns. I was wondering if this application can be done using a dry powder? I have also heard of a flame coating system. Would this be a possibility and do you have more information on it?”


“All the equipment used in the powder coating industry is not made to spray powdered metals. Powdered metals will short the gun’s charging system and wear the feed system in a short time. Sorry, but you will have to go to another industry to find equipment to be used with these materials.”
