    We do complete bolt carrier groups with micro-slick for $50
    Here is a test with a dry bolt carrier on full auto

    Is the coating directly applied over the manganese phosphate on the BCG or are you coating BCG's in the white (ITW) like the one pictured?

    typically metal is media blasted for better adhesion. I dont think there is any reason to remove the gas key. bolts are stripped and gas ring grooves are masked .

    Interesting, but not as interesting as coating the baffles and inside tube of a suppressor to simplify cleaning. Think the coating would survive and enable easier cleaning?

    Pencil Hardness (ASTM D3363) 9h

    This is a paint scratch test standard, not really a true hardness test. 9H is soft, and could be scraped off with a pocket knife. If one used this product to coat suppressor components, it would blast away in a few shots.

    I have tested coated inconel suppressor components with some high performance micro-films that register their hardness in the Vickers Scale. ( Super Hard ) It was blasted away in a few hours...

    How do you strip Cerakote off of parts if a mistake is made, or one wants to change the color?

    Cerakote can be stripped of by sandblasting with garnet sand. Pressure is adjusted for the type of material

    Does it help with getting them apart and/or cleaning? I’ve got a .22 can with stainless k-baffles that I’d like to test. 338 Win mag probably doesn’t build up much junk.

    The coating can be blasted off with a sandblaster and aggressive media, but will withstand repeated blasting from a firearm?? That seems to defy logic... lol

    The cores and tubes for the .22 rimfire clean pretty easily with standard cerakote. We will be testing microslick on them next week.

    I am thinking that the blast baffle will get stripped, but the rest of the baffle and the tube really get pressure and heat but not blasting.
