I am working on gathering equipment to do my parkerizing any sugestions welcome.
I find if you don't get the oil/grease off the parts before putting in the bead blaster it clogs up the pickup tube and the beads aren't as effective (but I do lots of car/boat parts normally). I re-sprayed the parts after blasting, and preheated/washed all the big parts in hot water.FWIW -- Use the brake cleaner after blasting.
Thanks for sharing the information. What mix ratios of TSP and baking soda are you using?And TSP is way cheaper than brake cleaner !
Here is one more tip ,you can use oil to "neutralize",actually Displace the phosphoric acid (Park solution ) or a short boil in baking soda ( Acid neutralizer ) will do the same thing much more effectively ,then oil it after it`s dry . Stops the ORF`s rust bleed issue :tongue: ! If you are going to expect the best park job you have to take some extra steps to get the very Best results !!!
Oh save your park solution it will work many times over ....Some of mine dried out and i just rehydrate it with distilled water and it is as good as new !
These tips are the result of Decades working in Gov contract shops :tongue: .
