Copper Powder coating

Does anyone know anything about copper powder coating? Does it actually look like real copper? Pros and cons?

Is this what you're talking about? I've wondered the same thing, being as though I've drooled over this bike since the day I saw it.

These are pictures of my bike with copper powder accents. We shot all of the powder at our shop. It is a translucent powder shot over either chrome or polished aluminum. It's not an exact match to copper or copper plating but most people that see it have no idea that it is powder coat. Hope that helps, let me know if you need anything else.

Later, D.J.

Very nice. (both the bike and the powder) Up against copper, I'm sure you could tell, but only because it is a bit different. It doesn'thave the "plasticy" look of some powder. I can't wait to get my oven finished to play!

Hey all, The powder is a translucent copper from PPG and I sprayed it with no clear coat. Some manufactures require a clear coat on translucents and some don't. I did not spray a clear over mine and it is holding up fairly good. As far as the pre-treatment.....there really isn't anything you can do. You can't sand blast or rough up the surface because of needing the reflective chrome or polished surface under the powder. Another option would be to blast the parts, shoot a base coat of a "chrome" powder, then top coat with the copper.

Let me know if you need some. We can get it from our supplier but we can only do 5 lb. boxes.

Later, D.J.

or you could blast it, phosphate it, then chrome powder base, with a translucent clear for superior adhesion, and corrosion resistance, about 12,000 hours salt spray.
there are probably about 40 different translucent coppers, just depends on what your perception of copper is, and the person applying it.
like candy paint you can darken, or have un even tone via uneven film build

hope this helped
