Found this place when i was looking for a local powder coater to do some frame's.
Very interesting concept, small portable and affordable they say.
Dont give a price.
Seeing how its less than 2 block's from my door to theirs, I'm going to pay them a visit.
Should be tues. b4 i can get there. Got to put new brakes on my car.
Will be doing that monday if it dont rain.
Would do it tommorow but it's raining now and supposed to rain all day tommorow.
I hate rain, but it's better than snow. LMAO
From what I read it looks like it runs on oxygen and propane to create heat source then while its heating the frame it injects the powder into the flame and coats the metal. they have lots of different coatings.
You can mix them too so you can get a nice red color and make it glow in the dark too. "Yes I said glow in the dark" I dont think i will buy one but I may have them make me a nice red glow in the dark one.
Weird thing is no drying time required just some cool down time.
It heats the metal to like 200 degrees so dont think ya want to touch it for a few minutes.
The site says they can coat just about any surface.
I so want a demo.
I'll try and see if they would let me take some pictures.

I would call xiom themselves might be better price.
But i will check with the local guy here.
See what they say.
And see how much they charge me to do a whole frame.
