I have searched and could not find any info on optics prep. I am using C-series on scope only. Can I partly take down, mask, and blast or just 400grit paper? And how to desgrease if not acetone soak? Thanks for any help!

Re: preparing scopes for cerakote?

can you safely get a scope up to the heat needed for the cerakote to settle?

Re: preparing scopes for cerakote?

Use lint free glass cleaning cloths lightly wetted with acetone or alcohol and wipe down the scope.

Blow it off with air.

Mask areas you dont want to coat and if you have target turrets make sure you wrap them in a way that the C-Series does'nt get down into the seals.

Wipe it down lighly agian and blow off with air.

Coat and let cure for three days before you mount it up.
