    Cerakote

    I want to cerakote some top sheets of some skis, but that would require a hot box that would be able to heat up to 160f.

    1. Is this too hot for the skis? Ptex will melt at 85c or 185f.
    2. Who posted about that hot box a few weeks back that was pretty badass? How’s that heated? Is it pretty dialed in?
    3. Has anyone done this and does it hold to the top sheet well if so?

    That's getting into territory where you'll harm the epoxy layup.

    thats what I was wondering. If sustained heat for 60 minutes or so would be too much on the construction of the ski.

    Definitely an issue with heat on the epoxy.

    You look at all at a vinyl wrap instead?

    It'd also be cool to look at plasti dipping the top sheets too.

    Or even hydrodipping. YouTube shows some snowboards being hydrodipped
