kontrol tower top vent paint/coating issue

Recommended Posts

Based on the date stamped on my KJC2, it was manufactured in nov 2018. After several smokes, my powder coat looks like many in this thread. At first I thought it was gunk, but after removing it to clean thoroughly, I noticed it has a little bit of gunk, but most of it is actually coating bubbling and peeling. Maybe I got old stock, but it seems like current units might still have the isue.

I wish they would have stayed with Cast Iron or gone with Stainless Steel for the vent instead.  

 

It’s hard to keep paint from stripping with Aluminum.  It’s not a porous metal like CI.  The paint only sits on the surface and will scrape off easily no matter what you do.
