Sounds like the baking for the powder coat wasn't properly done. Properly baked, powder coating leaves a very nice sheen. Very hard coat finish. Even if its thin, its still plenty durable.

Hey guys, to sandblast and powdercoat, do we have to strip the bear frames first? Anyone tried using sticker wraps like those use for cars?

If need to strip down. How much does a shop charge for stripping and how much for reassembling on ave? Got a secondhand bike recently and thought of redo-ing the frame.

I am musing to power brush my bike and paint it myself. I will have to doing running for a while, until the bike is ready again (I got only one bike).

Hi guys

Does any of you know if powder coating is suitable for carbon frames?

No it won't work on carbon frames - you need a specific surface profile for the coat to ahere properly which is usally done by sand blasting and then negatively charge it so the powder sticks then induction heating - I really wouldn't want to try sand blasting carbon and as it conducts neither heat nor electricity it ain't going to work

Carbon fibre DOES conduct electricity!

The issue is whether the epoxy layers will survive the heat process.

If you're desperate to try, do it on a fishing rod

The fibers do but the resins generally don't
