Yes you can polish powdercoating. You can use the liquid ice polishing system from eastwood or the finessit from 3M both work well with powdercoat.

Hiiiiiiii guys!!! Yes, it's been a while. I've been pretty swamped the last few months (also just got my new big oven done after five months of work ughhhhhhhhh) so haven't had a lot of time for PBTP lately.

EW, a company I patronized for over 19 years, not only fired me as a customer after I returned several pieces of the same equipment within the warranty period -- all with the same defects -- but apparently booted me off their forum too because the screen name I've used for years no longer works.

Hmmmmmm, go figure ... they sell crappy equipment and I take the heat??? (I tried registering with a new name but they must have my IP stored or something -- said "your account will be activated upon moderator approval" that never came.)

Be that as it may, I DO miss you guys!!! Tell 'em I said hi.

Yes you can buff powder just like you buff paint.
As stated above with candy/metallic colors be careful to not get into the base coat.

I use the same products that I would use on a liquid paint job and I can make powder look just as flat as liquid does. The coater themselves can make your job easier depending on how much orange peel they get when they coat. I have seen some coaters that are bad and the current one I use now has very little to none when he coats stuff for me. I asked why that was and he just winked and smiled. Must be a process "trick" or just good attention to detail???

Depending on how much oprange peel there is initally determines how coarse of a polish I start with but I always finish with 3M microfinishing compund before the wax/bluff stage.(The one coater that is so good that is all I have to use on his powder) Work well and looks dynamite when you get done.

Good luck.

don't feel bad about your experience with the EW forum several people had the same thing happen when they redid the web and forum. I was lucky enough to not have to reregister, but it lost all of my previous post. Glad everyones been doing ok.

Ted

A general rule is anything that you would use on paint to be safe. I use denatured alkahol to wipe down parts between coats if it sits over night. Dawn dish soap is good also just to clean sample panels.
