The Dykem 80300 Steel Blue layout fluid is used to coat metal to provide a glare-free, uniform color so scribes appear clear and sharp. This product is a transparent, blue stain. It can also be used on other surfaces to reveal defects or pinholes, or view gear tooth contact pattern. It provides a thin film without cracking or chipping and dries in minutes for convenience. It comes in a bottle containing 4 oz. of fluid. The bottle has a brush in the lid that can be used to apply the solution.
Dykem manufactures marking systems including layout fluid, staining colors, thinner, remover, and mark and code pens. Established in 1920, Dykem was acquired in 1987 by Illinois Tool Works (ITW), now ITW Professional Brands. ITW Professional Brands is headquartered in Olathe, KS.

It has a very strong smell. This 4 ounce bottle of layout fluid will last me a long time. A brush is attached to the cap.
As others have said: prep the metal so its clean/oil free before using the blue fluid. However, make sure to have mineral spirits or something similar available to remove it. It is difficult to remove -although that's exactly what's needed when working on the metal.
Although I like this product, for my basic needs using a sharpie marker is better because I can just wipe the marker off the metal when I am done. But yes, this is good stuff for marking metals.
I love this stuff. It's a must have if you are a knife maker. It makes scribe marks so much easier to see.
Just brush it on, let it dry and mark away. A little warning/tip. Make sure you wear some disposable gloves unless you want to walk around for days with blue fingers. This stuff doesn't just wash off your hands.
I wish Dykem still came with the sort of durable cotton ball applicator tip under the cap. This version has a tiny paint brush (size of a small acid brush). Spreading it around on a steel or aluminum plate is more laborious with the tiny brush - also less even. Still a good product - just use a cotton ball or foam brush if you need to spread it over a large area.
After only a few weeks of use the seal inside the cap has started falling out when I am using the brush, thereby getting Dykem all over when it falls on the workbench. I then have to pick it up and put it back in place, getting my fingers all blue.
