Heat Treatment Compound is a grey powder that you sift onto warmed-up steel parts to form a thick black coating, protecting the steel from oxidation and pitting while it is being heat treated. After cooling, the compound turns to a hard black glass, which is water soluable. Simply boil the hardened parts in water to dissolve the coating, leaving the clean steel surface.

Always use a ceramic or metal container when treating parts in an oven, as the compound will bond to the floor of the oven. Preheat parts to 300-400 degrees F and then dust an even coating of powder on them. The powder will immediately melt and form a black coating to exclude the air. Eliminates the need for stainless steel wrapping, airtight boxes or inert atmosphere furnaces.

Supplied in one-pound container.
