The total powder coating cost is defined by several aspects of the project: the type and colour 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 price of powder decreases as the volume increases, it is more cost-efficient to powder coat large projects than smaller ones.

Defining the industrial powder coating cost factors

powder coating prices for mass production and powder coating cost estimate

Powder coating cost is dependent on both the size of the parts and also the quantity.

When it comes to industrial powder coating applications, the applicator will usually purchase powders directly from the manufacturer and provide you with a selection 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 to get an estimate based upon their product, and find out the applicators they supply.

Powder coaters tend to 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.
