Cerakote...need help!
 
HEY guys I wanna cerakote some of my pistols (mainly my Glock frames) but have no clue as to how the process goes. Any insight on this stuff? Do I have to bake it in the oven? And BTW I want the best finish available so if its sub par to cerakote, don't mention it. From what I hear cerakote is the best aftermarket finish available. So I need to know if I need any special tools or anything like that, how it cures, etc. All help is appreciated.

I thought Glock frames were plastic?

They are. What's that got to do with anything?

Well I mean, I wasn't gonna put it on jiffy corn muffin mix temps. Lol. I have a toaster oven that will go to temps from 100 degrees to 600 degrees.

Will cerakote even adhere to plastic?
And why do you want to coat it? Is it to change the color? If so, I think there may be a better coating out there for changing the color on a polymer framed handgun, but heck if I know what that may be...

I am not an expert, but I don't think I'd cerakote a polymer frame, because, even though those are tough as hell, cerakote is basically a spray on ceramic coating, and I would think that even a tough GLOCK polymer frame will have some minor flex upon firing that could lead to the cerakote chipping and flaking off.

Maybe someone who knows much more than we do will step in and help you out.
