Me and my partners have recently looked into doing duracoat/cerakote/gunkote and dipping to them since a large number of what we do is firearms. This would just be an added benefit to the customer if they wanted it. I have a few questions about it;
1) We do not have access to a blast cabinet and are not really looking to invest in one as our compressor would have to be replaced as well. Could we just scuff with 400-600 grit and be good?
2)Does the cerakote (baking kind) really have that much more durability than the air dry duracoat?
3) has anyone used all three; duracoat, cerakote, and gunkote? If so how did you like the three?
I just shot a speed shape with duracoat, dipped, and put the duraclear sealant over top. Going to give it 3 weeks or so and then beat it around to see how it holds up but I'm not sure its going to be the same as a slide, barrel, etc.
