    Duracoat

    Does anyone 1) have a contact number for the guy ( James ? ) in Colchester who does the Duracoat process and 2) have any experience of this finish in black gloss. ML

    We use Duracoat quite a lot for rifle stocks which is quite good done correctly but for barrels and actions
    ceracoat is a bit harder wearing. I have one rifle with a ceracoat action which is holding up well after
    about six years of hard use. There is a air dry version of ceracoat, the other needs
    about 120 C to cure. For metal I think the oven dry version leads to the better result.
    As far as I know James does duracoat and ceracoat.

    Thar from here has good contact to James, PM him if you have difficulty getting ahold of James.

    We manufacture composite stocks and do the odd bedding job, no gun work as such.
    I'm working on our own paints based on epoxy resins since a while and we are also testing
    industrial paints from the US mainly trying to increase durability compared to Duracoat.
