Powder Coating Your Bike Tank

Gasoline is tough on paint. Over time, the finish on your bike tank will become dull or faded from spills and gasoline vapor from when you are refueling. This can make your bike look old and worn. You can restore the look of your bike with powder coating.

Powder coating uses thermoplastic polymer to produce a hard and durable finish. The thermoplastic polymer comes in the form of powder which is electrostatically applied using a special powder coating gun. By electrostatically, this means that electricity is used to magnetize the work piece so that the polymer powders attach onto it. The work piece is then heated to a specific temperature which causes the polymer powder to melt and form a skin over the work piece.

Plenty of shops provide powder coating services. However, you can also do it yourself. Powder coating is not an overly complicated process.. Yes, you will need some equipment like a powder coating gun, infrared lamps, and an infrared camera. While these items may seem like a significant investment, there is the fact that you can use them for various projects in the future.

The infrared lamps and infrared camera are your alternative to industrial ovens that are used by some shops. The infrared lamps produce sufficient heat for almost all powder applications. The infrared camera is used for tuning the temperature and making sure that your gas tank is getting heated evenly.

Powder coating your bike tank should be quite easy. All you need is to prep the surface by removing all the original finish and cleaning the surface. Apply the polymer powder with the color of your choosing to the electrically-charged tank and then bake it according to specifications. That is all there is to it. And now you have a very nice-looking tank and bike.
