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.
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
Insta-Blak SS-370 GEL
Instant-acting swab-on blackening solution that's ideal for vertical surfaces, architectural applications, and smooth, drip-free black finishes.
- Architectural surfaces such as railings or panels
- Vertical surfaces
- Users who desire a slow reaction
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
