This was the first time that I ever used cold bluing on my fabrication projects. I had two websites / brands up to choose from. I contacted Van’s first. He was very helpful in the process that I was looking to accomplish & sold me on his confidence of his product. The end result of the job was cold bluing then clear coat finish. We and the customer are very happy with the results. Apollo Welding will use this product again. We ended up purchasing 4 gal. in three different orders. The ordering and shipping went off without any hooks or snags. Thank, You very much.

Without a doubt the best cold blue on the market. I’m restoring a 1980 S & W Model 28-2 Highway Patrolman .357 Magnum revolver. Although the project is not yet completed, the early results are incredible to put it mildly. I tried a 4 oz. bottle to get started, was so pleased with the results that today I’m ordering a gallon for future projects. Try Van’s, you won’t regret it!
