View Full Version : Blackening stainless steel

10-12-2009, 08:50 AM
Does anyone know of a easy way at home, to blacken stainless steel, so that it will withstand temperatures of 1000 degrees. I have a suppressor for an AR-15 that is full auto rated and under rapid fire the temperature can reach 900 degrees. I would like to darken the outside of this, but haven't figured out a way to do this without bead blasting the metal.

Looks like this stuff can handle 1200 degrees. I haven't tried it myself, but Brownell's sells some of their products and I've never been disappointed by anything I've bought from them.;)
