  • Caswell finish problems

    Tried my first cold black oxide kit on O1 steel. Blackening looks great but Caswell sealer is supposed to be a dry finish. My part is coming out with a sheen and noticeable runs and sags. Sealer was diluted correctly. Can I just blacken without sealing or even rinsing blackening solution? Also would sealer dry out flat if my part was glass beaded? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    For a Matte Sheen the penetrating sealer would be the one to use. However that is also an oil base finish

      Your website plainly states, the Caswell sealer is for a dry finish and the penetrating sealer is for an oily non dry finish. So I guess I ordered the wrong one.

        I just went back and re read the product description. It did state what I thought. So is the description wrong for the sealers? Which one is for the dry or matte finish? Thanks

          Caswell sealer is a dry finish, it produces a semi gloss once it is dry, Penetrating sealer is an oil based finish, it looks like a gun barrel once it has been applied.
