Metal prep prior to painting for refinishing firearms
Hello, I am refinishing firearms. Currently I only refinish parked firearms and use gun kote from KG industries. I am looking for a process to treat metal prior to painting that will provide a good adhesion for the paint. I have been told that Phosphoric acid may be what I want? Also can anyone recommend another product for refinishing that provides good resistance to wear and the elements.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Phosphoric acid by itself won't give the pre-paint finish you're looking for. Find a good iron phosphate cleaner/phosphatizer combo for best results. By the way - a hot black oxide coating is also a good base for paint!Dan Brewer
