    When this product was first supplied, it was attacked mercilessly as not complying to instructions and results. I had to re-test it 3 times with Trevor, Each time results were exactly as required and advertised. What became apparent is, that users...

    TonyN, Just like the small ovens, it depends on the particular ovens ability to bring the bullet load to temp and it's ability to maintain the temp. Reliable, repeatable temp control is key regardless of the size of the oven. My large oven cured...

    Powder coatings generally require 20 minutes baking. I don't know power costs, but that is about twice the baking time as required with the Hi-Tek coatings. Cost benefits here appear to support Hi-Tek . I don't know just how much powder can be...

    Just a couple of things, the web site is not Hi-Tek's website. What Ausglock has stated is, that 20gms (about 3/4oz) of the Powdered Hi-Tek, when made up with solvent to ready to use concentration, should coat using two coats, about 2100 9mm...

    6bg6ga, No heat here......I think you may be confusing Hi-Tek Supercoat and industrial powder coating. Hi-Tek Powder has the catalyst (hardner) built in. Powder must be liquefied with a solvent (Acetone or MEK) Hi-Tek liquid comes with the...

    Have you tested hardness of your alloy? What was it? How much reduction in diameter are you trying to achieve during sizing? You can use something like Aqualube 5000 in very diluted form to significantly reduce sizing loads. Other lubes may work,...

    If coating can be scratched from alloy with finger nails, it has not been processed correctly. There may be some adhesion, but if sizing starts to remove coating, this also confirms, that first coat was not stuck/prepared properly. At this point,...

    dansedgli You can use a more diluted first coat. I have heard people who used 20g powder to 200mls Acetone and use same volume to coat. It is only first coat that is required to be well bonded to metal. It does not matter what first coat looks...

    Thanks much Popper. Unfortunately, solvent like Toluol are not suitable, as solvents are required to be "Polar" in nature. Acetone was chosen, mainly for quick drying time, high solubilising characteristics, and reasonably lower toxicity as...

    Trying to re cook is not going to fix problems of adhesion. Once Hi-Tek coating is subjected to heat in an oven, with a second cook, it cannot be made to bond to the alloy if it did not bond the first time. The coating has set with first cook. I...
