Insta-Blak 335 is recommended for blackening cold and hot rolled carbon steels, alloy steels, tool steels, as well as cast iron, forged steels and powdered metal. It will even blacken A2 Tool Steel without using a prep (although it may have a small amount of smut). It will not blacken stainless steels. Insta-Blak 335 works well for properly cleaned steel sheets and parts for interior architectural steel finishes.

  • Tools/fasteners, firearms, architectural surfaces, and furniture
