Removing colour from rings
Hi all,

I think i am currently set on using my Winmau Sub Zero with Short stems and standard flights but i would like to remove the blue colouring from the rings.

Previously i have submerged darts in warm soapy water and removed the colouring with my point/a toothbrush.

Does anyone know if this will still work with these darts?

if that is a PVD coating (which i think it is) then no it won't. That will only work with paint.

it can be pretty difficult to remove a PVD coating fro barrels

The blue is a Titanium Nitride Coating coating and contrary to the whatever you have read or will hear, it is easy to remove, but not with acetone.
Here's a guide how to do it:

The blue coating is barely more resistant than paint.
Throw them in a Oxy Cleaner for some hours and brush them with a wire brush, repeat it and the color is gone.
But this method will leave dull tungsten behind, no more shiny darts until you polish them.

This is what’ happens when delivery’s take longer than Normal....you find old darts you dismissed. and spray them with aerosol turpentine lol. In the end I could have used nail polish remover and not needed a respirator and Nablus nitrite gloves lol....

Was kinda hoping to get it to plain tungsten , but these are fine for now.
