Cerakote Ceramic Firearm Coating Application Video




What do you think about this video?

David Swithers: Just a quick text note - at 9:02 the audio is telling us to "...contact the manufacturer prior to oven curing." The video tells you to do so before OVER curing.

Bob johnson: can you cerakote weapon lights?

Tim Landers: can you hydro dip cerakote?

Pieter Laubscher: Will enamel based paints sprayed over a matt Cerakote surface, dry and stay on? - I realize that Cerakote is a ceramic, and any enamel will eventually wear off. But can you spray enamel over Cerakote? I can't seem to get a straight answer anywhere.

Greg Ewing: Now that I have watched this, I see that one idea won't work. I had hoped there was a way to apply the clear over a newly blued firearm and get the best of both worlds. Would applying the micro-slick to the slide rails of a handgun work well? I have gotten a little lost on the different curing cycles and physical properties of the different categories. 

Carlos Contreras: +Cerakote when blasting a Free Float quad rail, should the inside of the rail also be blasted and cerakoted, i find it a bit difficult to get the paint to reach inside the rail.

tumdeax: +Cerakote Is it OK to use 120 grit Silicon Carbide instead of 120 grit Aluminum Oxide?

Mark M: Does anyone know if its safe or necessary to lube your barrel and other friction points with Cerakote? The information says "self lubricating compound" but doesn't say definitively weather or not to also add gun oil. Don't want to damage the finish.

VicariousReality7: How does it compare to teflon zink

sikkreations: I have a sata mini jet with a 1.2... Can I close the fan an adjust the material to compensate?

Doctorchops: We don't get to see the finished product?!

Cerakote: 1. You can find the blasting cups on our website cerakote (dot) com - it's called the Shake-N-Blast Canister. 2. We recommend using a .8mm tip vs. the 1 mm tip. 3. We haven't had any problems with acetone on polymers, but to be safe we now use Brake-Kleen to degrease and clean components.

Mrcaffinebean: @Smashedupcar300 It's ceramic.

Noobpatty: Think you had a type of 'Over' rather than 'Oven' 9:02 This was pretty interesting

turtlecat77: it's just a paint for a gun.

trevscustoms1: I have a small powder coating oven that maintains 280 degrees at a minimum. What would be the recommended cure time at this temp?. Obviously I would be only baking metal parts in my oven. I will be painting multiple colors so will a five minute flash time be sufficient between colors at 280 degrees? Thanks in advance.

Doctorchops: I have absolutely no intentions on becoming a Cerakote applicator at any point in the future, yet I just watched a 10 minute video on that exact thing. Why?

Cerakote: While the C Series is the best performing high temperature coating available in the industry, the Cerakote H series coating has better overall performance when used on non- high temp applications under 500F. Keep in mind that H Series can be used on most firearm components other than optics and can be cured between 150F and 300F depending on the material being coated. Please refer to our training manual in the resources section at cerakote,com for specific cure schedules.

Brandon Grady: That is a SICK video.

Brandon Grady: We have been putting polymers and plastics in the brake Kleen for 5 years and never had any melt. I wouldn't put any soft rubber in brake kleen.

SpecialAgentOrange1: that oven looks like a rape dungeon lol. Why dont they just bake the parts in the booths they paint them in?

speed4207: Why is the gen 2 stuff not available to "civilians" Americans?

Donorcyclist: @Cerakote: There's a typo in the caution at the end. The narrator says oven curing, but the written portion says "over".

Cerakote: H-Series Firearm Coating will handle 400F. We also offer the C-Series firearm coating that will handle 1800F which is typically only necessary for full auto applications.

Cerakote: The tank shown in the video can be found on Brownell’s website. The product is listed under the name “Black Iron Deep Tank” and retails for $84.99. The mesh basket was custom made to fit the tank and made retrieving parts very convenient.

Prismatic Powders: Great training video.

TNT66613: what does cerakote do for your firearm exactly? seems like a lot of prep and hassle just to paint a firearm with this stuff

TheMusho1: I wanted to see the end finish D:

ZRizzz: What color Cerakote is the Glock slide at 7:40 ?

Cerakote: @Smashedupcar300 CerakoteTM Firearm Coatings is more than paint. The coating improves performance and reliability over conventional finishes.CerakoteTM coating technology out-performs any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications. If you would like more information please feel free to contact NIC Industries (866)774-7628.

Cerakote: We recommend an inexpensive blueing tank which can be found at brownells(dot)com.

Cerakote: Cerakote will not adhere to itself once cured, however there are two simple ways to camo with Cerakote. The first and simplest way is to spray wet on wet freehand camo and cure all wet on wet coats together. The second way is to use a pull over netting or stick on templates over a base coat. In order to keep the base coat from smudging, flash the coating in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes between colors which will dry the coating without curing it. For any other help with call us at 866-774-7628.

tumdeax: @Cerakote: What is 3M respirator cartridge being used, A Organic Vapor/Acid Gas cartridge? What is recommended?

Cerakote: Yes, for prep you want to lightly etch with aluminum oxide or garnet sand (120 grit at 40-60 psi). Preheating the wood may be necessary to remove any excess oils that have seeped into the grain. We recommend curing at 150*F for 2 hours after application.

Breakneckhydra1: @turtlecat77 Paint is just color. This is a COATING.

USSNAFU: Another couple Questions. How/Where can i get a set of color Swatches for Cerakote? What Chemicals do you recommend for equipment cleanup? Thanks!

Cerakote: We recommend the 0.8 tip, a 1.2 will spray out too much material.

Cerakote: C-Series should only be used for high temp applications between 500F. and 1700F, such as full auto and suppressed full auto applications. All other applications, including semi auto suppressed firearms should be coated with the H Series Cerakote. C-series should also be used to coat optics and other substrates which cannot be thermally cured between 150F and 250F.

Cerakote: Cerakote should adhere just fine to the Kydex. Just prep it the same way you would polymer.

Kaepora Gaebora: Thank you very much, Cerakote looks very promising.

Joe Wakefield: I am having a very hard time finding something to soak barrels in. Do you have any suggestions on something long and deep enough? Do I have to get someone to weld one up?

steveday72: Great product. I want to coat my AR upper and lower with this to match Magpul FDE. There's a typo in the videos though - it's "respirator" not "resperator".

acrucialdood: Brakleen will melt plastic.

Cerakote: Unfortunately we haven't had the opportunity of testing Cerakote along side the Tenifer finish in accordance to A.S.T.M. Testing. Testing results for Cerakote can be found at Cerakote.com under the "Testing" tab.

BikeMeAustin: I have a couple questions and didn't see them in the comments. 1) Where can I find one of those blasting cups? Have searched with no luck. 2) I just ordered a decent HVLP touch up gun with a 1mm tip, will I still be ok? 3) I noticed you soaked the stock of the rifle and it appeared to be a polymer, so acetone won't destroy polymers? I've ordered just about all the things I think I need, having a hard time find the correct grit aluminum oxide though. I appreciate your help, thank you!

Cerakote: @DanTheVikingr the point of blasting (use aluminum oxide or garnet sand, 100-120 grit) is to give the substrate a bit of texture for the ceramic coating to cling to. This process can be applied to polymers and plastics as well. You can use our C-Series air cure yourself if you have a blast & spray booth, but unless you are comfortable with the process, we highly recommend an applicator which can be found at CerakoteGunCoatings com on our applicator locator map.

Cengiz Arslan: Hi, they said in a comment that they recommend hvlp gun to spray paint nozzle with 0.8 mm. Is there a particular jet for sandblast what they can recommend? How much mm? Which sand? Is also to prepare polymer-blasted with sand? Thanks in advance.

ruinerfixxxer: i was thinking about doing this myself, but I'll pay my gun shop $70 to do this for me!!

bigghoss74: Do you follow the same instructions minus the oven curing for the air dry version?

Kaepora Gaebora: Is this better or the same as a Tenifer finish, I have a AIRSOFT Glock 18c steel slide and outer barrel and I want to protect it as much as possible.
