Free Cerakote samples

Hey guys! Just wanted to pass this along in case you have ever wanted to try out a Cerakote ceramic clear. The company has unveiled their new "world's strongest clearcoat" campaign. ( @onehitwonder I know you have something up your sleeve right now too!) Right now you can visit their site: https://www.clearcoating.com/ and get a free sample of either their matte or gloss, air curing ceramic clear. Fill out a small form, and in a couple of days a rep will call you just to verify info and make sure you're getting the right product sample for what you want to do. Not long after we spoke on the phone I received a shipping confirmation email. This is a nice offer, and I wanted to pass this on to you guys in this forum. I'm tagging a few of you guys that I have interacted with, and I know are active on this forum, to help spread the word to anyone you know of that might be interested in a freebie sample. @K2Concepts @Tsunami @jtaglia @WileECoyote @MidOhioHydrographics @NotSoFast

    Like many others, don't stack the matte, it gets glossier as it goes up layer by layer

    I should have mine tomorrow. They had to scale the Rockies, swim the Mississippi, and hire a Cherokee guide through Appalachia to get them to me here in West Virginia.

    I'm just one state from them. You should be happy your getting that soon. Thanks again.

    Oh no complaints here @Tsunami . Just joking about how rural I am. I actually started the process a week before I posted, and was reminded to share the offer after I received my call from the rep that following week. So it's 1 week and a day longer than yours, but shipping is shipping. Can't wait to see your review!

    @Tsunami I can see where this would be a viagra free zone.... I can't wait to see the super chrome dipped and cerecoated. Awesome.

    Allen, I still have one hurdle to overcome and that's the inter clear used for dipping the chrome. We still get a percentage of dye back. I have not found any products that work kindly. But for the top coat it's Cerakote all the way.

    @Tsunami I'm curious how the airbrush worked for application. I've seen guys use one in YouTube vids, but the rep advised against it because of less even coverage. Do you feel it worked just fine? Or would you rather apply w/ a detail gun after trying it that way?

    @SpartanHydro  thanks for the heads up. A rep called Friday and asked about our process and what we were currently using for clear. After a bit of discussion he asked if we would mind if he sent a few other samples as well (gloss, matte, and soft touch) for us to do some testing, he just asked for a bit of feedback when we were done. He suggested be would call back in a month after he sent it... I said based on the custom film sitting here from @studebaker you better add a few to that...

    I have used them both with Cerakoat and if the part is small like a hand gun I would use the airbrush. Any larger and the .8 mm detail gun is getting loaded.

    If you get a chance, @Tsunami would you try the custom printed "Hoban Bros" film I sent you on the Super Chrome Speedshape? I think you will be pleasantly surprised with it's ability to stick to difficult surfaces.

    Of course I may interpreting your "Inter Clear" problem incorrectly.... What is the problem that you are describing with the phrase "Dye Back"?

    The Chroming chemical does not have a catalyst. so when you put a clear coat or an inner coat over it it starts moving and dulls the beautiful chrome. I sent you a couple of speed shapes with inner coat applied. You will see the issue. I use the worst ones for dipping since the film covers up the majority of the chrome.

    @Tsunami I am so glad that you found the clear Cerecoat! It looks like the problem is well in hand. SuperChrome, Cerecoat, Hydrographics, Cerecoat....

    That's where my head is on the process. Thanks!

    I have been using the 161 matte stuff on metal and plastic over hydrographics comes out really nice. I have been spraying with a iwata lph80 .8mm that is. For small stuff I will soon be trying a .5mm iwata eclipse airbrush see how it works. Did a welding helmet in rebel camo and added the clear yesterday. It lays down real nice from what I can tell.
