Hi-Tek Heat Set Supercoat in a powdered format. Same product as the liquid version but in an easy to use powder.
Hi-Tek powder is built with the latest generation resins and has the 2-extreme catalyst built in. To use, simply measure out the appropriate amount of powder and add Acetone or M.E.K. (3.5 ounces of powder makes up to 16 fluid ounces of bullet coating).
Complete instructions are included.
Very good stuff and easy to use if you follow the directions. I'very also done powder coat but this is way better.A Lil goes a long way as stated....I use 1.25 mil to every 200 bullets.You want 2-3 really think coats and it holds up great!Also do not rush the dry times and cure.I waited 8-10 minstrel between on each and had a dull look.Next batch I done 20 minutes between and they came out perfect Jeremy B Wright on Feb 18th 2019
T his product is so easy to apply and is absolutely the best bullet coating on the market. Randy Williams on Dec 3rd 2018
Love, love, love the Hi Tek bullet coating system. Instructions are detailed and if you follow them to the letter you can produce a very high quality product. I usually do 3 thin "wash" coats and the bullets are beautiful. No leading in the bore and super convienent.
Size after coating and put away for future reloading projects. Stephen Mariucci on Oct 27th 2018
I've been using this on my cast 9mm with great success. At first I had failures that where due to user error. Once I figured them out its a great CONSISTENT product. A few pointers from my learning curve.
DON'T try to use a cheap toaster oven... It just simply won't work. I upgraded to a better toaster oven with 4 heating elements that was actually able to hold a constant temp and was able to eliminate all of acetone test failures as well as eliminate inconsistent color after baking. Next is absolutely do not rush, the bullets need adequate time to fully dry. Your finish will be much better if you give them extra drying time. I also absolutely substitute 25% alcohol in my mix And do not for any reason over tumble. it will cause flaking issues and smash test failures. I tumble for 10 seconds, your bullets should still be wet with no change in sound when you dump them. If the sound has changed, or they are tacky and sticking together you tumbled to long.
Get a process down and stick to it and you will have great looking bullets. Colonel594@gmail.com on Sep 26th 2018
VERY HIGH QUALITY AND I WILL ORDER MORE.

After having fired over 400 9mm cast lead handgun bullets treated with the supercoat powder coating in four different guns, I think the coating offers several advantages over traditionally lubed bullets. Mostly, it is a cleaner process, both for my barrels, but also application-wise. Once I mastered the procedure, I saw no reason to ever use traditional lube ever again. I have been casting, loading and shooting cast bullets for over 45 years, and this is the biggest innovation in the field of cast bullets I've seen yet in my lifetime. Snuffy on Aug 30th 2018
I was hesitant to buy this over normal powder coat like eastwood that so many casters talk about on youtube, but I figured this would be much higher quality because it takes multiple coats. I bought the 3.5 ounce powder and bought acetone at walmart, I put on 3 coats which was actually very simple once you have a quick measuring system. Just for reference of how this might help your bullet in the barrel, I remelted some of the bullets I coated with 3 layers, they floated on top of the rest of the molten lead for a few minutes then i pushed them under and fluxed the lead. To the top rose all the coats, crumpled and burnt but still in chunks. Granted Im not sure how hot the base of a bullet gets once fired but this will definitely go a heck of a job preventing leading. I am anxious to buy more colors. Josh on Jul 3rd 2018
I have been powder coating cast bullets for my 300 blk with marginal results, they worked, but performance was not really very good. so I tried the supercoat in hopes of a little better performance, and I was blown away! Cosmetically they were superior, but when I sized them, I was sold. and when I fired the first loads, I was amazed, same bullet, same charge, same cases, same primers, 1 inch groups at 100 yards instead of the 4 inch groups I had settled for.
No way I am going back to powder coating, This stuff is as big of a revolution to cast bullets as smokeless powder was to metallic cartridges. Randy Donk on May 20th 2018
Works great , easy. A second grader could do it with good results. Thanks Larry Evans on May 14th 2018
I've now got almost every color of Hi-Tek. My latest two colors are the Black 1035 and the Red Copper.
I found with both of these that three very light coats ~3.5ml/5 lbs works quite well and gives awesome color. The picture of the Black 1035 here doesn't do justice to this coating. It's got a ton of gold in it. I'd almost call it antique gold. I always had problems with the Black K15 looking like crap. I mixed it according to the directions, which are not the same as the other colors, and it always comes out with a very matte finish that IMHO looks like crap. It shoots just fine but just didn't have the POP of the other colors. The Black 1035 doesn't have that problem at all.
The Red Copper is hard to describe but looks awesome.
Shipping is always prompt, product is packaged quite well and I've never had a problem with any of my shipments.
The one thing I wish ya would all sell is some 4-5 ounce HDPE bottles to hold the mix. I currently get them from Amazon but one stop shopping would be awesome.
As a side note, I was using syringes to measure the mixed product. I've switched to some 5ml plastic transfer pipettes. A lot easier to use and they're a lot cheaper. Satisfied user! on Apr 9th 2018
