    G'day, Tupperware boy. Mate... when you mix 20gms to 100mls Acetone. leave it to react for at least 30 minutes before you try and coat. Add 5mls to 2.5Kg of bullets. Swirl and dump onto drying tray just before it starts to dry off. Dumping...

    I use a small drop tube that comes right up to the bottom of the drop plate and run the unit at full speed. The SWC shoulder doesn't have time to hang up.

    Tony N, A straight convection oven is not the best thing to use. If you can get one (second hand) usually thrown out, then install a fan through the wall. Fan forced circulation is required to bake the whole tray evenly and also speed up baking...

    Yep. This oven has 4 heating elements, but I'm only using 2. 2 trays of 2.5Kg each baked in 7 minutes.

    I use a 10ml syringe. Suck up 6mls of coating and squirt it into the bucket. Swirl for 15 to 20 seconds, then dump onto perforated trays to dry. The coating is still wet when dumped.

    Right again. The aim is to make sure, that first coat is well bonded, and it does not have to look pretty. Second coat makes it pretty, and covers imperfections left with first coat. What is now becoming more clear is, that it seems that coating...

    That is a great set up. In the Green bucket, you may have enough to recycle and re-use. What seems to happen, with time, and using the coating system, each load with added coating can become much too much coating, then, each made up coating dose...

    If you don't want to re-use the wash, It makes great weed killer. I've dumped probably 20 liters of mixed coating on the weeds over the last few years.

    Great question. My guess is that the coating will dissolve, but more slowly. It may be simply better to put in the uncoated alloy with the MEK, put a lid on it, and shake. Leave it for a little while, and shake again. Examine and if its working,...

    Kevin c, The great thing with this coating is, that you can recover and re-cycle product back into solution if it has not been baked. As Trevor said, you can wash all containers and recycle dried residues, then use wash solvent to make a new...

    The wash from the swirl container is used to make up a new mix. But.... bear in mind. I washout after about 10,000 coated. and use about 200mls of acetone for the wash. When I mix, I do 2 litres of coating, 400mls of Catalyst and 2.8litres of...

    Popper, I don't know about temperature band comparisons, but it would be interesting to run powder coating at 250C and see what happens. As posted several times previously, the Hi-TEK coating only requires 3 minutes to fully cure after reaching...

    Around here in summer, Acetone swirl is like 10 to 12 seconds before dumping the bullets onto the tray. MEK gives about 20 to 25 seconds. if using Acetone, add about 10% Metho (denatured alcohol) to slow down the drying and allow longer swirling.

    If you get bullets sticking together, reduce the amount you are using for the second coat and shake a few minutes early. Smellykid. The candy Apple is very nice glitter red.

    Coating container wash mostly is OK for first coat. Keep in mind, that first coat will always be or should be very thin, and may appear uneven, blotchy. After thorough drying and baking of first coat, if smash test is OK and solvent rub test is OK,...
