  • Best powder for bicycle frames?

    Hey guys, I'm going to be doing some bike frames, and was wondering which powder to use. I'm guessing it's going to come down to TGIC or Polyurethane based on the Caswell web pages.

    I'm wondering which one to use, or if I should use something else. If anyone prefers one or the other, I'd be interested in hearing about it.

    For example, if one is significantly less prone to orange peel, or tougher, or more scratch resistant, that sort of thing. Reading the Caswell pages, they seem pretty similar. I've used one polyurethane for something else, and the finish was really smooth and glossy, I liked it a lot. Not sure if they are all that way.

    Thanks!

    i cant speak on the polys but the tgic i have shot run from mild to almost no peel. it has to do with the fact that my oven is slow to come up to temp so the powder is staying fluid longer from all acounts i have heard. just my fyi for today.
    when in doubt polish it out/ why replace it when you can refinish it

      Mine might do the same thing then, it takes a long time to heat up, about a half hour.
