First off, sorry this is a long post and sorry we haven't posted in a while as a lot of good changes have been occurring the past 4-8 weeks. Second, we DuraCoated this polymer stock last October (11 months ago). Yesterday, we went to strip it and it wouldn't budge. So, our next step is to sandblast it in our stripping cabinet aka different sandblast cabinet so we don't contaminate our main sandblasting cabinets media. We used our usual 70 grit Aluminum oxide and at 90 PSI (with polymers we always crank down to 50 PSI and hold back a few more inches) but in this case that wasn't working either. So, we cranked up to the usual 90 PSI and the picture you see is how it looks after about 2-3 minutes of straight sandblasting using 90 PSI 70 grit Aluminum oxide! Anyone that does this professionally knows 2-3 minutes on 1 stock is more than sufficient. This is a testament to all of the @lcwduracoat
Haters aka Cerakote fanboys. We love Cerakote and use Cerakote about 80% of the time, but we get asked every day what's the difference and that they hear DuraCoat isn't good (all because of a few youtube videos lol). So, we have done extensive testing on all professional firearm coatings/ films being Cerakote, DuraCoat, KG, GunCandy, Hydrodipping and even Spray Paint on parts such as Metal Pipe, polymer grips and magazines, wood stocks, and other miscellaneous gun parts. In a nutshell, first 4 coatings will last very very long when applied properly. ITS ALL IN THE PREP WORK AND SPRAYING AND CURING TECHNIQUES! Please don't believe what you see on a fucking Youtube video lol.
