Cerakote Ceramic Firearm Coating Application Video




What do you think about this video?

Dr. Hannibal Lecter: A guy that I personally know that customizes firearms says that if I were to apply Cerakote or Durakote to a firearm, do not apply it to the inside of the frame or the magazine well, as it could affect the firearm's performance. He stated that after Cerkoting his firearm, more specifically, his Glock 17, he would experience magazine and casing ejection malfunctions, gravely affecting reliability. Would it be okay to spray the inside of a firearm or coat its inner components? And if so, besides the precautions mentioned above, what, precisely, should I be wary of? Thanks!

Rhino Shield Jacksonville: Most people don't understand how well ceramic coatings protect the substrate.

Zedhead187: I have a Remington 870 Magpul edition. The factory guy must have bumped the receiver into something and left a dent/raised area on a 90 degree corner near the barrel before it was Cerakoted. The raised part is facing out and drives me crazy. Do you think I can work the ding back down without damaging the Cerakote? Maybe try a brass punch or ballpeen hammer. Or should I just call Remington so they can say not a defect your stuck with it?

N8RV: "Respirator" is misspelled at 5:54 on the video. Good video. Makes me appreciate what the applicators go through to properly prep and finish a Cerakoted gun.

hashi420man: What hvlp paint gun is recommended for applying cerakote? 

T Woogie: if i paint parts at different times due to cost will they match each other?

Bob johnson: can you cerakote weapon lights?

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.

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. 

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.

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

Tim Landers: can you hydro dip cerakote?

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.

VicariousReality7: How does it compare to teflon zink

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.

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.

Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
