    In Pennsylvania it could be different than New Jersey but I could share one

    tid bit about release of oven fumes into the air. An EPA rep said they were only concerned about stacks with a diameter larger than 6 inches. Please note this told to me some 20 years ago.

    Talk about budgets we purchased our first oven for 30 dollars in 1969.

    It was a used kitchen oven.

    We flipped it on its side in order to use door while placing it on high stand.

    Oven temperature at 500F

    served us well.  We added fan air from outside to even out the heat.

    At that time we would heat up the parts before dipping them into fluidized bed for Vinyl encapsulation.

    Chao Li,

    Thank you for your inquiry. It remind us that we should look into

    converting some our large inventory into cash.

    In the custom powder coating business you are lucky if a new customer

    wants a specific color/texture/gloss which is on the shelf.

    We’ll note your e mail address.

    Yes. We have purchased and used many of their powders.

    TCI is excellent powder coating supplier.

    Sorry about name error our bad experience was with Tiger Drylac.

    But you probably knew better when I said Tiger Spaylac.

    Buyer beware is good advise.

    Our experience with powder coating manufacturers has been very good.

    Except for a very bad experience with Tiger Spraylac.

    We were extremely overcharge for a powder in spite of Tiger having quoted us a price the week before. I mean it was so outragous I could not beleive what they were doing.

    We did get them to credit us after a long fight back in forth.

    We avoid doing business with Tiger as a result of the outragous business tactics

    we encountered. We had done business with them for over 20 years before the

    complete change in their management.

    We have successfully powder coated over product already powder coated.
    Many times the customer wanted their corporate color to “replace”
    the OEM mundane grey or other.

    This inquiry reminded me of our purchase of a used paint oven which needed converted to powder coating use.
    One problem was the lack of a floor in the oven.
    Eventually we added fire brick to the floor with the idea that the brick would hold heat which would radiate upwards into parts conveying thru the oven.
    This gas oven was top side pushing hot air down.
    The amount of money spent on this used oven could have purchased us a new & better oven in hindsight.

    We have experienced this sort of thing many times – the customer throwing you a curve by changing their standard procedure of roto blasting or not before shipping product to us.
    So, we make sure our proposal spells out what kind of surface condition we expect to receive from our customer.
