Default Robar NP3+

Does anybody know how thick a coating this is? I need to plate some non-firearms parts for ultimate corrosion resistance and lubricity and my boss has his panties in a wad over a couple thousandths. I myself don't think it's all that important, these are sliding through a rubber O ring.

Goju can speak to NP3 basic, as he has a beautiful 1911 that all internals are coated with NP3.

NP3+ is brand, spanking new. Best bet is to call them and see, because no one has done it around here.......................yet.

Sorry to be doing this in more than one place, but in case you don't look at the gunsmithing category and know the answer: does anyone know how thick a coating this is? I need to plate some parts for ultimate corrosion resistance and lubricity and my boss has his panties in a wad over a couple thousandths. I don't think it's all that critical but would like to know. Thanks.

I called them today but didn't think to ask that. Thanks for the answer JD, you're the man. I just got done reposting this in the club house. Feel free to delete that one.

Double F - We have sent, easily, 3 dozen, handguns to Robar for coatings.

When I was looking to go against Cane in the .460 Rowland build off, I sent mine off and the results were AMAZING for fit, function and performance.

I think you need to call them. The folks at Robar, and I HAVE talked to them recently, are very knowledgeable about their product and may be able to give you the .000" thickness of their coatings.

I know from SHOT, and talking to them, that NP3+ is an advanced version of NP3. It's rated higher, it has a "deeper" level of penetration and supposedly it's MUCH better for the weapon.

Someone will eventually get a firearm treated with it for FTF and post a review.

JD

I think it is about 1 micron, but your best shot (pun intended) is to give them a call and see- Tel (623) 581-2648, in Phoenix AZ

I talked to them today, failed to ask that, hoped someone here would spare me the embarrassment of calling back and asking something I should have today. Guess I'll just have to suck it up and bite the muktuk.

I want to plate internals of a valve handling salt water, not so much concerned with appearance.
