Powder coating prices: here’s what you can expect

So you are looking for powder coating prices. Whether you need commercial-scale application, want your rims or wheels powder coated, or are looking to apply it yourself, you have come to the right place. In this article we provide you with an overview of powder coating pricing for industrial applications, do-it-yourself jobs, and all other powder coating services.

Powder coating prices are determined by several aspects of the project: the type and colour of the powder, the application method, the amount of pre-treatment required, and the surface area of the part or object. Because the price of powder decreases as the quantity increases, it is more cost-effective to powder coat bigger projects than smaller ones.

Determining the prices of industrial powder coating

When it comes to industrial powder coating applications, the applicator will usually purchase powders directly from the manufacturer, providing 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 supplier. It can often be beneficial to contact the manufacturer to enquire directly about powder coating prices based upon their product, and the applicators they supply.

Applicators tend to give a flat rate per item or a variable rate for mass jobs, depending on the difficulty of coating the objects, as well as their size. If pre-treatment such as sandblasting is required, this may also increase the price. 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.

To apply powder coating yourself at home, you will need some specialist kit and know-how; it is not a cheap DIY project. Costs will comprise of:

  • Coating equipment – spray gun, spray booth, hangers etc.
  • Coating powder
  • Curing equipment – curing oven and tapes

Equipment pricing for DIY and business

In the following table you can find some powder coating products and their prices. Note that the prices are only indications, and exclude possible shipping costs. Powder coating equipment pricing is variable between companies and products. For example, powders come in three main varieties: epoxy, polyester, and a blend of the two. As a rough guideline, polyester powders are cheaper than epoxy, and gloss finishes are cheaper than matt finishes. 0.5kg of powder will cover about 4m2 of flat surface.
