Just wondering how this finish holds up. I have heard that it was very convenient and just as durable as regular DuraCoat only you have to bake it for curing. Just wanting opinions from people that may have actually used it.

I would hope it would be more durable, otherwise what would the point be?

I really think that Norrells should start a more aggresive sales pitch, and get more colors....

I have never used any of it But the Dura Bake comes in an aeresol spray can but you do have to bake it to cure. I know the standard DuraCoat does not have to be baked but baking helps with cure time. Just trying to see if there are any downfalls with the DuraBake as it seems much easier to use.

A straight spray can would certainly make it easier for people that only want to try it out, or do a few things.

While I don't use their product, I'm glad to see they are moving forward in new directions.

I hear ya there. I know there are a bunch of really good products out there and I just plan on playing around with it for now. I got a can of the spray and a can of their stripper en route. I am going to try it out on a stripped upper and lower I have. It seems like it will be pretty easy. Spray the items with the solvent , let dry, spray it with Dura Bake and then put it in the oven for 15 minutes at 300degrees. Then spray again and bake for a more durable finish. I guess I will see. Stickman, what do you use and how easy is it to apply?

I use Norrells, and it is about as easy to apply as you can get. I figure its $50-60 for all the supplies to refinish a few rifles or carbines.

I wrote up a refinishing thread with pics, supplies, and everything else.

Take a look at it here


Let me know if I can help answer any questions.
