    Protective coatings for Rowell #5 Ladle

    So I have a couple bottom pour ladles that are a few years old, and have developed some surface oxidation. When I try to pour with them, they create more dross in my molten alloy and it's becoming a pain to get it all out before I can pour.

    Does anyone know if Cerakote or some other ceramic coating can work to help protect the ladle and prolong its lifespan in storage / performance while casting?

    No idea on the ceramic coatings, but have you tried just oiling the ladle after use?

    Well they're already oxidizing so I will likely need to blast them, but yes I should probably oil them. I would rather have a more permanent long term solution though.

    I can't think of anything. Bead or sand blasting it and keeping oil on it in storage is about it.

    I asked RotoMetals what they do, and they said they blast and high temp paint theirs. I wonder if there's any reason why Cerakote (esp the super high temp exhaust ones) wouldn't work....?
