The cost of powder coating varies greatly depending on location and specific services performed. Burn's Powder Coating, for instance, can treat a simple bar stool for as little as $70, whereas a vehicle transmission housing can cost as much as $200, as of 2016.
The type and size of the item being coated play a large part in determining the price of the service. The prices quoted by Burn's include preparing the item for powder coating. This includes thread masking and abrasive blasting if necessary. Subsequently, any plastic and rubber must be removed from the item before treatment, and it must be free of oil, grease or excessive dirt.
