Faqs

  • Q?

    Why should I have my parts powdercoated instead of painted?

  • A.

    Powdercoating is much more durable than paint (although it is not indestructible). Any finish, even plating (such as chrome) is capable of being gouged or scratched if a sharp enough object scrapes it. Powdercoating, on the other hand, has up to 75% of the hardness of chrome, is very pliable, which makes it great for items that will flex or bend, and is thick compared to paint.

  • Q?

    How large a part can you powdercoat?

  • A.

    At the present time, our oven capacity is roughly 48" x 48" x 96". Any part that you could hang in a box of that size and not touch the edges would be ok.

  • Q?

    Why should I use JLC for my powdercoating?

  • A.

    We offer reasonable prices and stand behind our work.

  • Q?

    What types of items can be powdercoated?

  • A.

    Anything able to withstand 400 degrees for extended amounts of time.

  • Q?

    How much heat can powdercoateing withstand?

  • A.

    Most powders are manufacturer-rated at 250-300 degree operating temperatures. We do have some high temperature powders rated up to 1,200 degrees, but only in select colors.

  • Q?

    Is there some way to save money on my powdercoating?

  • A.

    Yes.  The most labor-intensive part of powdercoating is the preparation. While we would have to discuss the specifics to finalize the discount, if you have the ability to strip your parts of all the rubber and plastic items (one exception is brake calipers, the rubbers can stay on), and really clean the parts before sending, we can work something out.

  • Q?

    What is your turnaround time?

  • A.

    Normally, we get parts turned around and shipped within 1 week of receiving them, but, larger jobs, like a set of rims, will probably be 2 weeks max.

  • Q?

    How do I care for my powdercoated items?

  • A.

    Caring for powdercoated items is much like caring for painted items. Simply wash them with soap and water.
