cerakote prep question
Have a guy that will blast it, but is using like an 80 grit crushed glass-says its sharp, not the beads or anything. Will this work? Or is the AO 120grit the only thing I should blast with? Locally I cant find anyone...have a guy that will do it for free if I get material, but AO is like 80 bucks for 50lb..anyone have a cheaper source or anyone help me out? TIA
And still in the air about cerakote/duracoat....want cerakote..
Check out Columbia coatings....they sell 120 and 100 aluminum oxide and its a decent price.
If you have a tractor supply store near you they should have AO. Thats where i get mine, its usually $55/50lbs
so the 80 grit crushed glass is a no-go?
Cerakote doesn't recommend glass cause it doesn't leave enough of a profile.
I highly recommend using alum oxide or garnet will work in a pinch (used it on some truck rims that wouldnt fit into the cabinet). Wouldnt suggest using glass, it wont give the coating enough to bite on to.
