    I have only used the bake on spray can type. It is reasonably tough but still just paint, it will chip or scratch if you are not careful.

    The trick to using any bake on finish is to do a heavy sand blast and spray the first coat as light as you can (Just Dust it and don't try to coat it in one application.

    After it has dried at least 30 min go back and dust it again just enough to get the holidays.

    (Thin is better and is more chip resistant).

    Good luck

    Place two or three very light coats on a well sand blasted surface allow 30 min between coats and
    let dry for thirty or more minutes then follow the baking instructions (Time and Temp)

    The thin coating self levels and makes a good finish.

    Thick coatings can run during baking and are more likely to chip. They also fill serial numbers and proof marks
    making the job look poor. (When finished the prof marks and any lettering/engravingshould look crisp and clean).
