!!USPS STEEL SHIPPING DELAYS!!

We have been experiencing issues with USPS and steel shipments. These shipments have taken up to a month to arrive. We highly advise choosing UPS for any orders containing steel at this time. We will update once we have seen the issue cleared.

Check out the NuClayer Systems - NoScale we just got in!



NoScale2000 is suitable for all steels stainless or carbon. Oil and water quench pops the coating off. Air or plate quench will leave a white coating. can be scrubbed off with warm water

Meant to be a thin paint. Mix well. Brushed with foam brush or sprayed with an air brush after thinning with water. Can be instantly dried with heat gun, torch or heat from a forge.
Good for all carbon and stainless steels to 2000 degrees in forge or furnace.
Water and oil quench pops the coating off leaving a surprisingly durable black finish.
Plate quenching leaves the coating intact-turns white. Can be scrubbed off with water and a nylon scrubber. Wire wheel works as well.
No coarser than #220 finish on stainless before applying the NoScale..
Also used as a thin edge coat for helping to create hamons.
