Matt,
I have been using the nozzle pictures since I last posted in short arc and have not reapplied an have not had any problems. I am only welding short runs do I am not pushing it by any means.
I can still honestly recommend this product to anyone (and no I don't get a kickback for the advertising)

I was wondering, I don't run my mig enough to need a nozzle guard. I was just curious about how it was going for you. :)
It's always best to build your own, especially when it comes to hitches!!!

I think you are misunderstanding it's use? It's not supposed to bee applied to the area you are welding, it's to apply to surfaces you don't want weld spatter to stick to (nozzles, tips, clamps, table etc). It looks like you welded through it? That's going to affect the quality of the weld. You now have ceramic "slag" trapped in your weld.

And very expensive way. Use Anti-spatter for what you are doing.

Hi
I agree (to an extent) with Mike 27. Using ceramic coating as regular anti spatter is extremely expensive.
However there are (must be) cases where the job justifies the cost. I guess you could mask off the parts pre weld to stop spatter on the job but avoid the actual weld.

Re the costs.....I think the BorNiGuard can has 11 fluid ounces while Loctite has about 9.5.so as far as one can being cheaper you have to consider how many ounces you get for your buck.

I've tried both and the BorNiGuard builds a thicker film faster, so it likely has higher ceramic solids.
By the way Southpaw... What colour is your Loctite. I thought it should be white like the borniguard but My Loctite was a pink-ish coating from the first can, but not the next. ?

Weld on .....

regards

Spraying this stuff on jobs and jigs should only be in high temp situations. Or where a highly expensive part must be protected. Other than that, the water based anti spatter is fine. (And non toxic)
