The Powder Coating Area within our Metal Shop at Pikes Peak Makerspace consists mostly of Level 2 equipment.

Additional training is required to use our Level 2 equipment.

 Powder Coating Area  hand tools should be marked with pink tape or paint or powder coating.


All our Powder Coating Equipment combined occupies about 90 square feet (6'x18'). It is a small but important part of the 5,500 square foot building that we lease.
