STAINLESS F/X™ is a Versatile, Bright, Multi-Color Patina for Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel (Common, Mild Steel), Copper and Brass!
STAINLESS F/X™ Produces Golds, Grays, Blues, Blue/Violets & Bluish/Black AND Even Blue Gradients on Bare, Polished (Bright) Stainless Steel or Mild Steel, as Well as Copper & Brass.
No Heating of the Metal or the Patina is Required With Any of the STEEL F/X® Patinas or Dyes.
Drizzle, Drip, Brush, Dab or Spray (Spritz), on Bare, Polished or at Least Very Clean Stainless Steel For Very Unique, Vivid, Multi-Colored Patinas and Effects. (Spritzing Multi-Sized Droplets is my Favorite Method).
See Photos & Video Below. STAINLESS F/X™ Patina for Stainless Steel is the Result of 4-1/2 Years of Research, Development and Literally Hundreds of Failed Tests! Developed In-House & Mfg’d Only by STEEL F/X® PATINAS! STAINLESS F/X™ is Another STEEL F/X® EXCLUSIVE! Not Available In Stores or Through Any Distributors, Steel Yards or Other Metal Suppliers. The STAINLESS F/X™ Kit Includes 1 Each of ‘Stainless Surface Activator’ & STAINLESS F/X™ Patina of Equal Sizes.
Please Note: There are Dozens of Stainless Steel Alloys on the Market. Some Stainless Alloys Are Manufacturer Specific, Proprietary & Very Exotic. For Example, Many Alloys Used in High-Quality Knives or Firearms, While Considered Stainless, May Contain Metals or be of Such Metallurgical Composition That They May Not Be Particularly Responsive to the Patina. This Product Has Only Been Tested on a Few Common Stainless Steel Alloys, e.g. 304, 316, as Well As Several of My Own Knife Blades & Firearms. (Exact Alloy Composition of Those Are Unknown). Every Alloy Tested as of 12/05/17 Has Responded Very, Very Well. Your Results May Vary, So a Little Trial & Error, Along With Testing in an Inconspicuous Area is Strongly Encouraged.
RUGER® Alloys are Tough to Color with STAINLESS F/X™. (The Patina Works, but the Colors Aren’t as Vibrant)
Also, the STAINLESS F/X™ Surface Activator, Although Completely Odorless, Can Cause Some Discoloration and/or Flash-Rust on Nearby, Exposed Ferrous Steel, Even by Indirect Contact. Always Work in a Well-Ventilated Area, Away From Any Tools or Fixtures Made From Bare Steel, to Dissipate Any Fumes and/or Mist That Would Cause Unwanted Staining or Rusting. Mask or Shield Any Areas or Components of Your Work-Piece That May Be Subject to Rust.
The Patina (STAINLESS F/X™), Itself Does NOT Have This Property, Just the Surface Activator. DO NOT MIX The 2 Products Together In The Same Container. Mixing Won’t Hurt Anything, But it Will Render the Patina Ineffective on Stainless Steel. It Is IMPERATIVE That The Surface Activator Be Applied to the Surface/s of the Stainless Steel Prior to the Application of the STAINLESS F/X™ Patina and Left Wet While Applying the STAINLESS F/X™.
And, the Stainless Steel Surface/s MUST be WET With The Surface Activator Before & During the Application of
STAINLESS F/X™ Patina.
Coverage is Approximately 20-30 SQUARE FEET PER 16 OZ. KIT. This Patina Kit Will ALSO Work Beautifully on Mild Carbon Steel, With the Exact Color Reactions Achieved on Stainless. When Using on Mild Steel, a Clear-Coat or Sealer is Mandatory, Or It Will Eventually Just Turn to Rust.
Spray (Small, Short, Spritzing Spurts That Emit Droplets Work Best), or Apply w/ Dropper, Pipette, Sea-Sponge, Clean Rag, Etc. Rinse or Wipe Off Thoroughly & Dry With Clean, Dry Compressed Air. Done!
