ITC 213 ceramic coating protects metal and stainless steel from oxidizing, eroding, and fatigue, at forging heats and even in contact with molten metal.
Use both as a temporary coating when heat-treating steel, in knifemaking to create a Hamon patterned knife blade, and in long-term applications to protect metals. It's useful to protect the likes of forge mouth steel edges which otherwise famously corrode from hot combustion gas exhaust.
ITC-213 is rated to 3500°F, multiples higher than 'high heat' BBQ or manifold paints, which burn up long before reaching forging heat.
- A little goes a long way. (1/2 pint covers 12 sq. ft)
- ITC-213 Coated metal can not be welded.
- Available in 1/4, 1/2, and 1-pint jars.
Coating plate steel with ITC-213 reduces heat conduction by 300°F (at forging heat).
When ITC-213 is applied and top-coated with ITC-296A, the heat loss between the hot and cold faces of 1/8" thick steel is reduced by 1050°F.
Water-soluble. To activate mix 3 parts ITC 213 with 1 part water. Kept in a sealed container and not allowed to freeze ITC-213 is stable for over a year.
