Paint over Powdercoat

Does anyone know if you can paint over powdercoating? I just had a set of wheels powdercoated black, but not really liking it. I want to paint them White. Thanks in advance!

Yes you can a few considerations are

make sure they are the same family of products, if your wheels were powder coated in a polyester based product, then use a poly based paint.

prep the same way you would if you were painting over paint.

yes, there are paints that can be powder coated over & look good when finished.

good luck!

Best thing to do is wet sand with a high grit and knock the powder coat to a dull finish, then use Scotchbrite. Powder coat gives a great texture for paint to adhere to. I make custom handlebars and powder coat the entire bars... wet sand them to dull... Scotchbrite... airbrush them... then clear coat. Gives a beautiful finish.

The following bars were done this way...





Cheers!

May have some issue powder coating over powder without removing first. Adherence issues, cracking, improper curing, and poor tolerances such as axles, bearing cups and such

Hi. Dbear,
first of all you can not powder coat over any painted surface.
here are the reason behind that.
1. mostly paints are insulators in nature , that mean they could not conduct electricity.
2. powder coating is applied through electrostatically over electrical conducting surface.
3. if any surface is already painted that means it is no more electric conductive in nature and hence no powder coating will be stick.
