Fluid Beds are the most popular method for precise powder painting/coating for fishing jigs, pilkers, spoons, lead fishing weights and sinkers. With a Fluid Bed is an economical and easy powder painting and coating as well as professional results are achieved time and time again. Proper fluidization will approximately double the amount of powder paint. This lower density is what allows for a consistently uniform and smooth coating on the item. Heat the item with a heat gun, over a gas burner for about 10 seconds or in the oven at 180 ° C for about 15 minutes. Then quickly dip the item into the powder paint for about 2-3 seconds and then remove immediately. After removing the item from the fluid bed cup, the powder paint should melt within a few seconds and flow out. If the finish of the item is not smooth and glossy, the preheating temperature should be increased just a few seconds. To obtain a hard curing of the powder paint on the item, it is recommended to place the item in oven at about 180 ° C for about 10-15 minutes. Curing causes the powder paint to chemically "crosslink", creating one of the hardest finishes in the paint industry.
