    Is the dark room where you spray only the glow powder?

    Hmm, I didn't know glow powder was light sensative. Man, this powder coating thing is sure getting complicated these days!

    Yeah, I had the same thing. It turned out that 400 F was actually 325 on the dial.

    A simple over thermometer is no more than $5 at home depot. Nobody should be powder coating without one.

    started a topic Orange Peel

    Orange Peel

    Awihile back I asked about orange peeling. All second coats were doing it and I was getting blistering on some first coats. Well, turns out it was temperature. Seems you can't believe thermostat markings on the devices. Purchased a thermometer and found 400 degrees was at 285 on the oven. Can you imagine what 425 was
    Temp is very important. This newbie found out the hard way.

    Thanks for the responses

    regards
