FAB106: Sand Blasting and Powder Coating SBU
Class Number 46-117636
Powder coating is a durable, simple to apply, easy to clean up, product. It is inexpensive, and more environmentally friendly than paint, as it has no VOCs and no solvents are used. The final product is more durable than paint, and powder is available in many colors and finish types.
The sand blaster can be used on metal, wood, glass, mirror, plastics and almost any material that is rigid. It will remove paint, rust and mill scale, as well as cleaning welds. (The parts must be baked at about 400 degrees for 15 minutes, so it will not work on magnetic items, or anything with grease in the part, like bearings.)
In this Safety and Basic Use class, you will learn how to use a cabinet sandblaster to prepare a small metal part, clean and coat it with powder, and then bake it on in the powder coat oven. There is only time in class for sandblasting steel and aluminum parts.
Note: The sandblast cabinet and powder coating oven are large enough for motorcycle frames, bicycles and many other bulky items. Please visit your local TechShop and check the oven size if you have a specific project in mind.
Because of possible shock (high voltage, low amperage) with a powder coating gun, members with a pacemaker or any voltage-sensitive medical equipment are not permitted to take this course or use the equipment.
