Eastwood Metal Blackening System - EW15357z

The look of OEM applied black oxide coating at home, and even more durable

Many factory brackets and fasteners originally were given a black oxide/phosphate finish to protect them. Eastwood's Metal Blackening System allows you to apply a factory looking finish, with no special equipment and no need to heat cure. This 2 component product protects against rust and temperatures up to 600℉. It not only replicates the look of black oxide, but the feel as well, while being even more durable.

▶   Replicates OEM black oxide/phosphate finish
▶   Chip and chemical resistant
▶   Resists temperatures up to 500℉
▶   Protects against rust and corrosion
▶   Not affected by DOT 3 brake fluid or gasoline
▶   No special equipment, no heat cure
▶   For iron, steel, stainless, and aluminum

Application

Eastwood Metal Blackening can be applied by multiple methods including: brushing, airbrush, detail gun or included Preval sprayer.

BRUSH ON:
1. Follow all surface prep and product mixing instruction steps outlined previously.
2. Be sure to wear protective gloves, eye protection and respiratory apparatus as described in safety instructions.
3. A good quality disposable foam brush works best for smooth, even product application.
4. Carefully dip foam brush into mixed Eastwood Metal Blackening, then spread onto surface using smooth, uninterrupted strokes.
5. This product is designed to go on in several thin coats which are much more effective than a single thicker application. To apply additional coats, wait a minimum of 5 minutes between coats. 2 coats are recommended.

AIRBRUSH OR DETAIL GUN APPLICATION (PREFERRED METHOD):
1. Follow all surface prep and product mixing instruction steps outlined previously.
2. Be sure to wear protective gloves, eye protection and respiratory apparatus as described in safety instructions.
3. Use a gravity-feed detail gun or airbrush with a 0.3 to 0.5 mm needle/nozzle set and mist on the first coat of Eastwood Metal Blackening.
4. This product is designed to go on in several thin coats which are much more effective than a single thicker application. To apply additional coats, wait a minimum of 5 minutes between coats. 2 coats are recommended.
5. Do not allow the product to cure in the spray gun or permanent damage will occur. The gun must be cleaned thoroughly with Surface Prep cleaner, Eastwood Aerosol Injected Cleaner #12846Z, acetone or lacquer thinner.


Application is either with the included aerosol spray or conventional paint gun or air brush. Once product is dry to the touch, approx 24 hours, parts can be assembled or placed back into service. Once parts have fully cured for 2 weeks, they will be protected from corrosion, chemicals and abrasion for years and still have that OE black oxide appearance.

Safety

Use in a well ventilated area. Read and understand all instructions.

  • Easy Eastwood Metal Blackening System
    Like the title says, very easy to accomplish. I bought this kit specifically for use on some aluminum items. Works pretty well from what I can see. How durable the coating is remains to be seen. And it does have some gloss to it; it's not dull by any means. More like a semi-flat black sheen. Left knurled portion of peep sight is aluminum and the right side is factory steel, with whatever blackening process they used in the late 40's.
  • Perfect results
    Used for outdoor strong-ties and carriage bolts. Nearly 300 pieces. Followed directions.Excellent results.
  • EASY TO USE
    Bought this to do my rims for my truck it would be a lot nicer if it was more product in the kit.
  • Easy to apply
    I bought this a while ago ,easy to apply seam to work well ,must let it cure completely a few days so it is more durable . Looks great !
