    Great Touch-Up for Aluminum if used correctly

    I used Birchwood Casey Black Touch-Up for Aluminum on a lower receiver, and it came out fantastic. The aluminum has to be super clean. I first use non-chlorinated brake cleaner, and after that dried I brushed the area with acetone. As soon as it was dry, I started wiping on the chemical. I didn't have to let it dry I just kept brushing it around until I was satisfied with the color. I let it sit for about 5 minutes and rinse with water. Very satisfied with the results. The temp was about 85, and I think being warm might help the process.

    Excellent product that does what it claims

    I used the Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black Touch-Up On my S&W j-frame, which was showing bare metal along the rear sights from holster wear. This was in touch upon a small area. I prepped with steel wool and alcohol. I applied with a cotton swab. The first application was blotchy, but a second application darkened the metal nicely and evenly. I let the applications air dry in between and then rubbed with a cotton rag. The effect was a matte black, which was slightly shinier than the surrounding factory paint. There also appeared to be a rim of slight dulling of the paint around the treated area; however, following the recommendations on the bottle, I applied a little gunstock wax and buffed the area. This blended in the treated area with the surrounding paint very well, giving a more even look. Total time was 20 minutes with a very satisfactory result. I don't know about durability at this point, but since this is a chemical reaction rather than a layer of paint, I imagine it should be reasonably durable. Besides, the application is so easy and gives a result I can live with, I don' t think I'd have any problems with having to re-treat after a reasonable amount of time. Excellent product that does what it claims for its regular use.
