Applied material cost and transfer efficiency of powder coatings

Applied powder material cost is simply defined as the actual cost of materials used to finish a part or group of parts. Calculating the actual applied cost is a simple accounting task for many experienced powder applicators, but there is more to understanding and controlling the applied cost of the powder finishing process than a simple math equation. Powder finishing professionals calculate the applied powder material cost by gathering some basic data before, during, and after the job is completed.
