Re: Where to buy Cerakote?

Yeah, spoke to him also. Said they have been working on the website the last 3 months or so. Website's going to have new videos and all kinds of cool stuff and you won't need to log in to see it all.

Prices for the H-series are:
4oz trial size- $35
pint- 60
quart- 90ish. I can't remember 90 or 95.

I also need to get access to a media blaster... Hmmm.

I still think enough 'tooth' could be put into metal parts with the correct grit of sand-paper but he said no of course. Doesn't mean I won't try it. There's a great video of the whole process on youtube, the degreasing looks super-important. $36 isn't bad.

Re: Where to buy Cerakote?

You could do no prep at all and it would look good till you start using it. Cerakote with the exact surface prep is the most durable firearm finish you can get. Anything less than the prescribed surface prep will give you less than ideal durability. Sand paper isn't going to cut it. To rough or too fine of media will not work. If you are unwilling to do it right I would save your money and pick up some Krylon or Dura Coat.

Cerakote cannot be removed by any known chemicals once it's cured and nothing will stick to it so it will need grit blasted anyway when you have to redo it. Might as well order up some 100 to 120 grit garnet or aluminum oxide to start with.

Nic takes phone orders. This is how we got it before we were certified. You don't need any secret passcode. That section is for access to the certified applicators accounts.

Hahaha, never even crossed my mind to order by phone. But I want to do it right. No sandpaper for me. That also wasn't part of my thought process.

Re: Where to buy Cerakote?

in my case (Glock) the dove-tail where the front and rear sights go I'll have to be careful of the coating getting in there or the sights may not go back in.

Yeah the sand-paper won't work I usually follow instructions to the letter also.

How are you planning on baking your rifle at 250 ??

Re: Where to buy Cerakote?

I'm going to build an oven. I'll probably just build an MDF box and use charcoal starters wired to a rheostat for the heating element with a meat thermometer through the lid for temperature readings. We'll see. There are a lot of oven plans on the internet.

I also plan to do a 1911 and my concealed carry Glock 36. If that was all I was doing I'd probably just bake them in the oven.

Re: Where to buy Cerakote?

Hardest part for me is coming up with a media blaster. Anyone have any suggestions for that?
