    Good work on the Video. But..... Teaspoons??????? really??? Christ... that would do my head in. Grams and Millilitres are far easier to calculate when mixing small amounts. And a 10ml syringe for adding coating to the bullets is far easier and...

    KG is very good. it does darken with temp swings. I can run 2 trays of 250 at once in my oven in 7 1/2 mins. Colour is very uniform from bake to bake. PID control keeps the over temp to 2deg C of set temp of 198 Deg C. I also run K15 at the same...

    Depending on your location, in USA products are available from Hi-Performance Bullet coatings. They have an online store. With tinkering, I am a long standing tinkerer, and always busy with something either useful or useless afterwards. I...

    elmacgyver0 Thank you for reply. Now I understand things better. The interesting thing is, that Hi-Tek coating has been on the market for over 30 years, and was independently tested by an environmental engineering testing company, to measure &...

    elmacgyver0 Why are you having to clean Lead deposits in gun and suppressor. If it is being caused by what you are coating or doing, may be it is time to reassess all. You should not be getting deposits left in gun, no deposits in compensators...

    PC that is sold, and used for powder coating, the components do not dissolve well in solvent, and from what I had been advised is, that there seems to be an agglomeration of suspended particles that is contained in PC, and wet coat method may give a...

    elmacgyver0 Some people prefer to use Powder coatings. What you heard is strictly not correct. The only reason people coat with Hi-Tek twice, is to make product more "pretty" and provide more user appeal. One coat of Hi-Tek for most...

    Hitek is actually designed to be a Bullet coating. Powder coat is designed for Lawn furniture.

    elmacgyver0, aside from both being powders, there are many differences, both in chemical make up and properties. Just curious just how much detail are you seeking. This is Hi-Tek heat resistance link https://www.youtube.com/shorts/icq4UAvXyNY...

    Kevin C I am hoping that we are all talking about the Grey Mould release agents. Yes, the bonding and non-bonding release agents are applied as very thin coats usually pre-mixed in a solvent, so very thin even coats can be applied, then, when dry,...

    barsik If you are using the Grey Mould release agent, this Mould release agent is not soluble, and nothing stick to it or wets it out, that is why you cant dissolve it. It is also heat stable to 800C or more. If you were using Aqualube, as a...

    Walstr. Hitek came before PC. PC used a bastardized application of the HiTEK process. I find Hitek easy to apply and process. I normally to runs of between 5000 to 30,000 bullets at a time. HItek is also far cleaner to use than PC

    I only use Kryptonite green and after running 30,000 through the Magma Sizemaster, there is a slight green tinge on the collator plate in the bullet feeder. The collator plate in the MA systems feeder is alloy and has sharp edges. The home made...

    Now things are becoming more clear. This may be the reason for what is happening with rough finishes sticking of casts together, and fine crumbs coming onto your hands. Let me go through step my step. 1. The lube sizer has internal edges. As...

    Thank you for details. Looking forward to pictures. This seems a real puzzle. Aqualube should also separate coating from skin, and is a dry film lubricant release agent. I am at this stage stumped. It is difficult to understand why you are...

    Thank you for quick reply. Because you are not getting colour wipe off with solvent test, you have cured the coatings adequately. It seems to confirm, that there may be some mechanical reason why you get some colour removal during sizing. I...

    OK, thank you for quick reply. The reason for my silly questions are, that if no colour comes off with solvent test, I suspect that sizing process may be removing very fine blisters of baked coating. These very fine blisters may not be easily seen...

    Thank you for heads up. Just a quick couple of questions.... is solvent test removing any colour after last bake, and, is sizing and loading process is where there is removal of colour that ends up on fingers? Please advise

    OK, that explains a lot. I looked at records, and it seems that I sent some dark green V-2 to Donnie quite a while ago for supply to the US market. It was used by a couple of casters, but some opted to use the Dark Green metallics, which was not...
