Room Temperature, 65–85° F
Room-temperature black oxide processes are best for quick, safe, and convenient in-house and even at-home blackening. Use a room-temperature blackening process to give steel parts satiny, grey-black finishes and extra corrosion resistance.
Liquid concentrate solution used for swab-on or immersion blackening of stainless steel surfaces. Ideal for architectural surfaces, such as furniture and panels.
- Architectural finishes for furniture and panels
- Tools, machine parts, engravings, and sculpture
- Touching up damaged or faded black-oxide surfaces
Hot Temperature, 250–260° F
Hot-temperature black-oxide processes produce glossy black-blue coatings and true black-oxide magnetite finishes in 10–20 minutes. EPi’s line of high-temperature blackeners offers impressive abrasion and corrosion resistance, and several products meet military and AMS specifications.
Versatile powder solution used to blacken stainless steels. Resulting black finish has superior abrasion resistance.
- Blackening all stainless steels
- Working with a powder rather than a liquid
- Achieving superior abrasion resistance
