Parkerizing compound


Post by DanM » Sat Jul 02, 2005 1:33 pm

I've parkerized using fluid I got from Brownells, a gunsmithing catalog store. I had decent results, but now need to get more stuff.
One problem I've been having as it got older (I was reusing) was a yellowish buildup or streakiness.
Looking to see what you might be using, where you get it, etc., that you may have experienced. Or, alternately, your experience with having a shop do it.

Thanks- Dan

The parkerizing stuff from Brownell's looks like good stuff. I did a search and thanks for the info. I would like to try my hand at this stuff. If you've used it with success, you should stick with it.
This site might be of interest to you although they don't sell parkerizing fluid....oddly enough. They do have all kinds of do-it-yourself plating supplies and kits. They have a black oxide process that looks pretty good, but not as good as parkerizing because it does not offer rust protection.
