Pics of Cerakote on revolvers ? Does it work on stainless? Will Glacier hold up to a magnum revolver heat near the cylinder gap?

Yes, Cerakote works on stainless steel or any other metals. It goes on just about anything. If sprayed correctly, it is only .001 to .0015 thick. Glacier is able to be sorayed thinner. .001 to .00075
I spray revolvers, no problem. You need to have a certified Cerakote applicator know what they are doing though…
As for the heat, most H series will withstand 600 plus degrees. No one in their right mind will shoot any pistol to that temperature…
So glacier is not really necessary.

I dare say the temp of the hot gases escaping at the cone/cylinder gap area are brutally hot and well above 600 degrees

Me personally I am wondering could multiple coats be applied . Yes that is my question can it ?

Yes they are, no different than the glasses escaping out the end of any barrel. Or inside a combustion chamber of an engine

There is no need to try to coat it more than once. When applying Cerakote you put down 2 wet layers one after the other and it is done.

The abuse a revolver will give Cerakote is no different than any other abuse. Ultimately you are trying to protect the metal of the gun. End of story. Cerakote is the toughest coating so far developed for civilian use. I would not iver think it. We use it on hot rod and race car headers and combistion chambers. Your revolver will be just fine. It lasts a very long time inside of rifles and semi auto pistols.
