What kind of coating works with JB weld?

Long story short, I have a couple of projects (both Tippmann) that I've used JB weld to fill sections of the gun. I'm looking for a type of finish that will work with it. I know powdercoating won't work, as JB weld doesn't conduct electrical currents. I'm assuming that chrome and nickel playing aren't options either, as they're electrolytic plating? What about cerakote?

I want something durable, so spray paint is not an option. I've heard good things about duracoat, but I'm not sure that's the way I want to go.

Bed liners will work.

Use spray paint. That is the factory finish, it is cheap, easy to redo.

Any other finish will chip too and just be more costly to re-do.

A bed liner will hold up, but be expensive and heavy and kind of hard to work with.

Plasti-dip probably also.

Honestly a good rattle can job with decent prep prior and primer will hold up better than you think. It is just bad spray paint jobs that flake real easy. Nothing you can do to those bodies will even come close to a good type 3 hard anodizing.

If you don't mind a dull finish, a good self etching primer will hold up pretty well. They have several colors, and it is a much thinner finish without adding a layer of paint to it.

If you want a design you can hydrodip them.

That's not true; the factory finish on tippmanns is a powdercoat. I know I'm not going to get something as durable as an ano, but I have to work with that I can...interesting to know that a bed liner will work.

I've used Duracoat without a problem. My T9.1 and Woodstalker Ion (pics are currently down) both had JB weld that I covered with Duracoat. It adheres to the JB at least as good as it does to the Aluminum.

You can't find it everywhere, but I've had good luck with starting with a zinc phosphate primer. Then finishing up with a good spray paint like Cunha mentioned.

Powder coating will most certainly work with JB weld. It is actually a common filling material for a lot of powder coaters.

I can powder coat the marker for you, that is not a problem. I would just need to hit it with a special primer first to fill in the holes left behind in the JB weld. I could also cerakote it for you if you wanted to go with that route.

Good to know!! Which one do you think works better in a paintball application, in your professional opinion?
