“We’re looking for comparative analysis for powder, spray, and e-coat technologies if any exists. Do you know of a source for this type of information? My primary interest is in making sound economic and environmental choices in selecting a proper surface coating technology.”
“There is no direct analysis between e-coat and powder coating that we’re aware of. However, there is a comparison between liquid spray and powder coating implemented as a computerized spreadsheet. This spreadsheet software is available from the Powder Coating Institute (PCI)/ 703-684-1770.
If you use this spreadsheet for e-coat, remember to adjust the coating thickness and the efficiency rating for that technology. We developed this spreadsheet application for PCI and can assist you in your comparison for a fee. If you are interested call us at (800) 97-POWDER.”
