    At least it does on my computer.
    This is pretty doggone tough stuff folks.
    Click on their FAQ Frequently Asked Questions area & that should tell you'll everything you want to know about DuraCoat.
    Your metal needs to be really pre~cleaned very well.
    You CAN easily do this finish at home! I would suggest that after you refinish your firearm you just "Leave It Alone" for at least a week!
    It is available in about 40 different colors.
    Some of the colors are quite attractive & the military camo colors are true to Mil. Spec.
    You DO NOT need to bake the DuraCoat finish.
    To apply the DuraCoat Finish you'll need an Airbrush or at least one of those cheapy Pre~Val Sprayers.
    About the best/easiest finish that you can apply to your firearm at home.
    It will give you superior rust protection...It gets tougher with age.
    This is a great finish for those firearms that you do not want to ship out & spend MUCHO$$$ on for custom plating and blue.
    As with nearly everything else....the results you get will be as good as the effort that you put into doing the job.
    PERFECT for home Evil Black Rifle Projects!
    IMPORTANT: You need to keep your greasy fingerprints OFF your parts before you coat them. Buy lots of disposable plastic gloves.
    You should have at least some basic rudimentary spray painting experience or at least have some "practice metal parts" ready to coat FIRST...so you can develop a spray technique for yourself before you jump right in & do your firearm but, SERIOUSLY it is pretty easy to do!

    Their pre-packaged camouflage color kits are neat if you feel like hiding your firearm in the bushes or the desert!

    If you buy the DuraBake then that is available in spray cans but, you get a finer spray pattern with an airbrush & DuraCoat.
    I think the DuraBake should be baked at the lower temp for the longer period of time.

    Duracoat Addition

    Here is an unrelated DuraCoat PICTURE PAGE that I found on the web.
    It has clickable thumbnails of assorted firearms finished in DuraCoat.
    You can PAY them $$$ to do it or...Do It Yourself!
    Anyway...Here Is The LINK...so you can decide if this is the "look" that you want for your particular firearm/firearms.
