Instructions off the bottle
The parts must be completely degreased with a non oily solvent such as Phillips Gun Degreaser. Any traces of rust should be removed with steel wool and gun degreaser. Once degreased the parts must not be touched by hand as grease from the skin will leave marks.
Phillips Cold Blue should be poured into a shallow trough made of plastic or glass and diluted with tap water, one part Blue plus three parts water.
Immerse the parts in the trough and ensure they are totally covered by liquid. Use a small paint brush, about half an inch wide, to wipe over the surface of the metal with short strokes. The metal will slowly darken through bronze colours and blue to a very dark blue. This will take about three minutes . Screws and other small parts will only need an occassional brush over.
Remove the parts and rinse in water thoroughly. Spray the wet parts immediately with Phillips Water Repellent Oil and leave for the Blue to harden for at least one hour. Wipe over with a soft cloth abd spray over with Phillips Silicone Airgun Oil.
