Additional Cerakote Mixing Info

Products can be mixed anywhere between 12:1 and 24:1 mixing ratios, we recommend you use one of the following three ratios for the desired finish.

Gloss units and levels are measured at a 60° angle, 18:1 catalyst ratio, 1-2 mil dry film thickness, 15 minutes ambient flash after application. Adjustments to these conditions will yield different results. Gloss is affected by spray technique and quality of preparation and finish. Read more about Cerakote gloss levels.
