I would have a disclaimer and say its your opinion at the beginning of your post, lots of people reading your post will think you are stating that as fact. Its good to backup what you say with proof instead of opinion alone.
Fact: powder coating does provide thermal insulation.
Opinion: the smaller size and gauge of the steel provides the insulation.
Just curious, do you even know the actual gauge of the steel on the PBC to be even making that statement?
