    Glockfan, I fully understand. I am not knocking any product. Ceracote has a great name and performance. What I don't get is, that the coating is applied to metal to do what? Corrosion resistance, great,.... but surface wear, I don't know so much....

    I am with you, results such as this, really do not provide any thing that is useful. It is marketing Hype. For any comparative test, you need to outline how it was done, against what standards were measurements taken and compared, so that people...

    Petander, I don't know any other way to get rid of other lubes except re-melt and cast. Most cost effective and safest way. All other type cleaners cause major problems, and toxicity problems. Then there is waste disposal problems. Sorry, there...

    Yes Tazza, I can also see that. But question is, why previous blogs remained at 1466 with several postings prior to the 1467 post. I thought that each post goes to next number. For unknown reason, it stayed at 1466 for a while.

    Grmps This video was done about 4 years ago. This shows heat reflecting and heat resistance of the Hi-Tek coatings. As I said, that due to limited time of coated alloy being inside barrel, despite extreme heat, coating should withstand the...

    Grmps, you are correct. The materials used for making coatings all reflect heat and tolerate a great deal of pressure. The metallic modification with these coatings so far has appeared to provide slightly better heat reflecting ability. So it is...

    glockfan Very well said, I could not do it better. It is easy, don't over think things. If simple things are done, there is no problems. Coating quickly is best. Don't tumble coat until it becomes sticky. If after coating and dumping you have...

    dansedgli These tests were done many years ago in Aus. The aim was to stop Copper fouling of barrels. As you know, Copper residues in Barrel require removal of this contaminant, and cleaners in effect erode away the bore by electrolytic...

    They look great. Have you smash tested them? With swirling/coating, I have to say, that with first coat, you add just barely enough coating mixture to cast, it should be just enough volume to barely coat. Only shake coat for 10-15 seconds. Rough...

    Stephen, I am looking forward to your results. If things are considered, a lot of crazy alloys are acid treated, (Anodized) using Phosphoric Acid type systems, so that coatings can be applied that will bond. Unfortunately, Phosphoric Acid is not...

    glockfan, I suspect, that water quenching causing failures, may be due to coating not completely bonding. Water may have gotten in between coating and alloy, and sudden expansion of the water with heat, simply hydraulically lifted off poorly...
