Black Oxide Activator 1 Quart (Makes 2.5 Gallons)
Black Oxide Activator
Certain hardened or specialized steels can prove challenging to blacken with our Black Oxide solution, only blackening to a grey color.
Our Black Oxide Activator enhances the color and depth of the blackened finish on these alloys.
Mix One Part Activator With Nine Parts Distilled Water in a plastic container.
Immerse cleaned steel parts in the activator for 2-5 minutes, rinse, then proceed to blackening.
Can be used at room temperature or heated to 120 deg F for an even greater activating effect.
For Steel Parts Only – Not Stainless Steel or Iron.
