Eastwood Metal Blackening System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Eastwood Metal Blackening System Like the title says, very easy to accomplish. I bought this kit specifically for use on some aluminum items. Works pretty well from what I can see. How durable the coating is remains to be seen. And it does have some gloss to it; it's not dull by any means. More like a semi-flat black sheen. Left knurled portion of peep sight is aluminum and the right side is factory steel, with whatever blackening process they used in the late 40's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice tough finish, but doesnt go far. I used this to coat many bolts and small brackets on my restoration project. I would like to see them offer just the blackening paint and activator rather than having to pay another $50 for a kit each time. Coverage wasnt the best, and sprayer doesnt work well with an ounce or less left in the bottle. You want that last ounce to be useful and sprayable as expensive as this stuff is. Might be better used with an airbrush. Seems to be a tough coating, all the bolts I have done and installed so far have not chipped or scratched at all from being installed. Good overall, but very expensive for what you get.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tootaly useles This is extremely expensive var. of very inexpensive black paint. Nothing common with oxidation surface blackening. Waist of money!!!

How well does this work on metals like titanium? I been looking for a blacking solution that doesn't rub off and durable, an example would be if this was applied to a titanium ring. 

Asked by: Cmb1934
When applied to properly prepped and scuffed titanium it will adhere very well and be durable as it is a catalyzed product.

In comparison to auto paint and powdercoating, how durable is this product?

Asked by: JDANDRIDGE
This is not a standalone paint product, it's an additive that goes into paint or powder. It does not affect the durability of either material.

About Eastwood Metal Blackening System

The Eastwood Metal Blackening System is far more durable than any room temperature blackening system on the market today. User friendly, easy to apply spray application requires no special equipment, no air compressor, or specialty solvent. Everything you need is included in the kit. The Metal Blackening system was designed for the DIY market to accurately duplicate the look and feel of black oxide phosphate finishes on automotive under hood and under car hardware , bracket, hinges, etc. Normal Oxide coating was done with heat and chemical baths that still could not prevent the corrosion over time. The Metal Blackening System eliminates all of that. Easy to apply no heat cure and your parts will look accurate and never rust again and have protection from heat up to 600 F. Professional results on all steel, stainless and alloy components.
