I learned I can scuff a white powder coated tumbler I bought at Academy Sports and dip it. Same price as stainless and saves time. Next to test powder coat clear over it.

    Thanks for the post @bogie Knowing that a fully cured powder coated cup can be dipped is a big help to the forum members! PLEASE, post your results with the clear powder coated cup when you get it done. I have a few customers that had great results with an epoxy polyurethane hybrid powder used in a tribo gun.

    Here is a picture of my Hardee's Cup with a white tribo powder coat base, and a clear powder coat top coat.

    @studebaker , That's also a water slide decal correct? I just got a great deal on a sublimation printer, people have been wanting me to put pics of their show cars on tumblers.

    @bogie That's actually a hydrographic print... It was an experiment that went right. Sublimation works on Polyurethane powder. You just need to find a big enough heat clamp to fit a 30 oz. tumbler. Everything on the market seems to be for smaller cups. The gentlemen in South Florida that was building Sublimation heat clamps for Yeti tumblers got cancer and quit right after he got his patent. Bummer....

    @studebaker I know this guy in Jersey through the silk screen industry, he does all sublimation equipment and supplies. They have wraps for everything. Here is a link to the 30oz wrap.

    Thank you @bogie That link was a big help for one of my customers! That will be perfect for his needs. He is experimenting with Laser transfer onto powder coated cups. And that wrap will be perfect for his oven cured experiments. So far, his experiments seem to be working!

    After dipping over a powder coat base could you top it with a 2k clear?

    Wow I would have though the heat would effect the dip thanks for the post @bogie

    P.S
    I have a black lab that loves cats as much as this guy loves bunny rabbits =) .... cant really comment on the condition of the poor fur balls after he gets done loving on them though
