Re Coat with Hi Temp 1800
- February 12, 2019 at 2:21 am #14413
Does anyone use HI Temp 1800 on your stainless steel draping molds? How often do you recoat the molds? I’ve had great results so far, but am not sure if I should recoat every 5 times? Every 20 times? I initially used several coats, and fired the mold in the kiln for 20 min at 200 F. Going forward, do I just need an occasional touch up, or something more? Thanks in advance for any advice you may have!February 12, 2019 at 9:51 pm #14421BeckiParticipant
I think I’m one of the few that uses that product on stainless! I don’t think there’s any set number of firings. I just clean the mold and recoat when it looks a little bare.
By the way, you can skip the 20 minute firing at 200. Totally not necessary.February 12, 2019 at 10:51 pm #14422
Thanks Becki! I’ll do thatFebruary 13, 2019 at 12:32 am #14423PlurpleParticipant
I use ZYP, which for slumping purposes works the same. I rarely brush and spray another coat on my SLUMPING molds. I slump at 1175°, and I have found that it is just not high enough for sticking.February 13, 2019 at 6:32 pm #14424
That’s good to know Plurple – thanks for sharing 🙂October 9, 2019 at 7:26 am #15000robertbmayParticipant
No, but I want to use HI Temp 1800 in my stainless steel. I am searching for a HI Temp provider which can provide me a cheap price of it. Because recently I starting my job at http://www.resumesservicesreview.com/ online service and my budget is very small. so please advise me on a cheap HI Temp provider.
