Complete guide to powder coating prices Qatar
Considering powder coating but still wondering how much powder coating costs? Whether you need industrial-scale application, want your rims or wheels powder coated, or are looking to apply powder yourself, you are in the right place. In this article we’ll give you an overview of powder coating prices for industrial and commercial applications, DIY jobs, and all other powder coating services in Qatar.
The total powder coating costs are dependent on several aspects of the project: the type and color of the powder, the application method, the need for surface preparation and pre-treatment, as well as the surface area of the object. Due to the fact that the powder price decreases as the volume increases, it is more cost-effective to powder coat larger projects than smaller ones.
Industrial powder coating pricing principles
When it comes to industrial and military powder coating applications, the applicators usually purchase powders directly from the manufacturer and provide you with a range to choose from. Prices can vary depending on the manufacturer, the type of powder, and the nature of the contract with the powder coating supplier. It is often beneficial to contact the manufacturer to enquire directly about powder coating prices based upon their product, and the applicators they supply.
Powder coaters usually give a flat rate per part or a variable rate for mass projects, depending on the complexity of the project, as well as the object size. If surface preparation such as abrasive blasting is required, this may also increase the total powder coating costs. If you are searching for industrial powder coating companies, make sure to find out whether the company has the equipment and ability to coat your project.
