  • another prep question

    after you degrease and blast, do you guys handle the parts w/ bare hands? ie...remove it from blast cabinet w/o gloves and then wipe w/ acetone? and after wiping, i would presume you don't want to touch it again until it comes out of the oven?

    just curious how this procedure is handled.

    thanks

    It depends on the parts and the quality of finish expected. A+ jobs, GLOVES ALL THE TIME but other stuff I do, silloette artwork, I dont wear glovs after blasting, and they are fine, but those pieces are fro Indoor use, hanging on the wall. When in doubt, Glove up.

        Baz,

        so after using acetone, how do you avoid contamination from finger oils? or is it just not that big a problem?

        i will experiment with and without and see what happens.

          After prep, I'll handle parts with the gloves if I have to handle the surface I'm coating. It really is cheap insurance, they are not that costly.

              i do my final cleaning with acetone after the part is on a hook on my rack to avoid any contact .

                good plan.

                how do you guys apply the acetone? wipe on/off w/ cloth, spray on then wipe off, etc?

                    One thing I have noticed with Acetone, it deos leave a film. I have had bubbling of powder after final spray of Acetone. Even if let to dry/evaporate fro 20 min in summer sun Now, I pre bake everytihng at 150-200 if I have sprayed cleaner on it. I use ISO propyl Alc now too, just cause I get really good deals on gallon jugs
