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. (7 ounces of powder makes up to 32 fluid ounces of bullet coating).
Complete instructions are included.
i was always a powder coater and i figured why mess with a proven process, well let me tell you why, at first Hi Tek seems complicated, its not, i was able to do a batch of 30 lbs of bullets in 20 mins, i mixed it in a 5 gallon bucket (30 mls of the mix, i ml per lb) and i was super happy with the results, i used zombie green and K5 black, the black coats easier, i ordered the candy apple red so i can see how that comes out. give it a try, you'll never mess with powder coat again. i wish i can give it more than 5 stars bob on Feb 1st 2018
Ordered Kryptonite Green and Zombie Green last week and as of this week, I switched from powder coating to Hi-Tek coating. If you follow the instructions, it works perfectly. One thing to keep in mind is the temperature of your oven is very important... Check it's accuracy before using.
Naturally I didn't follow my advice, but because I'm using a new toaster oven, it should be calibrated correctly, right? The first batch of Krypto green .380 bullets came out a gold-ish color. They did look pretty, but these were not the green bullets I was looking for... So, I made a trip to Walmart to buy a $5 oven temp gauge. My new oven's 400 degree setting was actually 450+ degrees. Who would of thought..
After calibrating the oven to 385 (sharpie mark on the dial) the next 8 batches produced nice green bullets by cooking at 385 degrees for 10 minutes. I Used Kryptonite Green on some and Zombie Green on others. Not as glossy as powder coating but each bullet was coated evenly, looked great, didn't have a problem with sticking and was very cost effective.
I used a home made 6x8 1/8 inch basket and the metal pan that came with the oven (foil lined). Just a few bullets were slightly stuck together but a light shaking of the basket separated them easily (I cooked 150+ bullets on each tray). Worked great. Always had one pan going in as the other was coming out.
Another important tip.. Make sure the coating is dry each time you add the coating mixture to the bullets. I used a small desk-top fan and each coat dried in less that 10 minutes.
I would suggest adding a little extra acetone as mentioned in the instructions. I used 150 grains (yes grains) of powder to 60ml of acetone for both versions of green. Just about right for 1,500 bullets (1,400 .40sw and 100+ .44mag).
With a little patience the Hi-Tek coating will do a nice job coating your bullets and protecting your barrels.

My first attempt at coating bullets. The data provided was very clear and easy to follow. I've processed bullets using a Star with various lubes which were messy and gummed up my press and dies. I will continue to resize my bullets with the Star but will not go back to the messy lubes. I look forward to using different colors in the future. Unknown on Jan 15th 2018
Easier by far than powder coating. I use my own cast bullets mostly .38 special. They were as accurate as I can be and my barrel only had a little powder residue left to clean out. So far very happy I took the steps to try this product. Unknown on Nov 27th 2017
Looks good from what I see although I have not tried to coat anything with it yet. Unknown on Nov 26th 2017
This stuff rocks, I coated .312 diameter 155 grain round nose bullets for my 300 blackout. Not only was there NO leading but these bullets are very accurate. I'm ordering more of this HI-Tek Supper coat powder as soon as possibly .
Thanks a ton Tony on Oct 27th 2017
Do not wait just buy it. Easy to use with great results. Joe Robinson on Aug 23rd 2017
That's all there is to it. Without Hi-Tek I wouldn't be reloading because I don't particularly see the value in it unless I can produce bullets for virtually nothing, and this stuff goes a long way. Something like a 10th of a cent per bullet or maybe even better if you're more conservative with your powder than me. That means I've got 5 or 6 pennies in every 9mm cartridge I load. cityofthesouth on Aug 7th 2017
This is a great product love the colors easy to mix just follow directions you can't go wrong. I also bought on line PASSION Glass Graduated Droppers Pipettes 10 ml pack this really helps in applying the mix to the cast bullets. I have the Black K15 and Gold 1035 that just came in some time this week I can't remember too many hours at work. Hard to find time to have fun. I will make them up I'm hoping next weekend. Keep up the good work. P.S my daughter would like you to make up Hot Pink can you do it? If you can't I'm going to buying your product anyway.
Some colors are just not doable in the Hi-Tek Resin. Unfortunately pink is one of those colors.

Los resultados obtenidos en mi primera sesión de recubrimiento de pintura, has sido satisfactorios.
Lo he probado en puntas de 125 - 148 y 200 grains.
La única dificultad que tuve fue en el trafilado del los plomos.
Deberé utilizar el concentrado Aqualube 5000
