Foil or ATP-641 440c heat treating

I am making some knives from 440c. I have previously sent them out for heat treatment. but have decided to try my hand at it. I have a heat treat oven able to hold temp +- 2degrees F.

After some research Iíve come up with 2 possibilities.
Wrap in 309/321(not sure which) foil or coat in ATP-641.

ATP-641 Seems like it can be used but only found a couple instances of it being recommended. As it would be the cheapest option I would prefer it. I did see somewhere the Brownells antiscale product could cause pitting at temps above 1600F.

If anyone has good/bad experience with ATP-641 on 440c I would appreciate your insight

Thank you for your time
