What is Cerakote Gun Coating?
In addition to hydro-graphic dipping we also offer Cerakote Gun coatings. Cerakote cannot be used as a base coat for our hydro-graphics process.
CeraKote is a top of the line coating. CeraKote was developed by NIC Industries, Inc. CeraKote was designed to provide a high quality, long lasting finish, with high corrosion protection and durability.
CeraKote is available in 31 standard colors. It provides excellent corrosion protection, outstanding abrasion resistance, extreme hardness, & unmatched durability.
CeraKote surpasses Teflon based coatings for wear resistance by well over 60%. CeraKote has self lubricating elements incorporated through out the coatings matrix, this allow firearms to function with little or no fluid lubricants that typically attract abrasive dust particles. CeraKote performs extremely well in automatics with high cyclic rates.
The “C” series ceramic gun coatings were designed as a single component ambient cure system. As higher temperatures are reached the “C” series will flux, becoming harder and more abrasion resistant. After a full cure this coating provides excellent resistance to most cleaning solvents and chemicals. It has a pencil scratch hardness (ASTM D3363) of 7h, exceeded the 5% salt spray test (ASTM B117) with well over 550 hrs, an adhesion cross cut tape (ASTM D3359) of 5B, & has an optimal film thickness of 0.5 to 1.0 mils. It has a heat stability rating in excess of 1200 degrees f for extended periods without failing.
