A. UNDERSTANDING BOTH METHODS
A summary of the hot and cold blacking methods.

1. Hot blacking converts the metal surface into an iron oxide, which has no oil absorption properties. It is a glossy finish and has a black appearance when dried without oil.

2. Room Temprature blacking converts the metal surface to a copper complex, which has excellent oil absorption properties. It is a matte finish and has a dark grey appearance when dried without an oil. The oil is an important component of the process because it helps to retain the black colour and provide protection against oxidation.

A. Thanks Ulhas.

Manish may also wish to review our FAQ "Black Oxide and Cold Blackening". In the USA (where this site is based) we use the term "black oxide" rather than "blackodising"; if people search the site for "black oxide" they will find dozens of threads addressing Manish's issues.
