What is Cerakote Firearms Coating?
Cerakote is a coating primarily for high temp applications and firearms, but has a lot of other uses. It is a ceramic based coating that goes on very thin (1/2 to 1 MIL) but is very tough. It has a chemical resistance to just about everything you can put on it including paint strippers, it is very flexible, and above all it looks awesome. It can be done in all kinds of patterns, solid colors, two tone, and comes in about 100+ colors. Cerakote generates no VOC’s so they are safe for the environment.
Cerakote ® Coatings improve performance and reliability over conventional finishes. This state-of-the-art coating technology out-performs any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications. Superior wear resistance | Excellent corrosion protection | Impact & scratch resistant | Maximum adhesion | Low dry-film thickness | Maximum hardness | Excellent chemical resistance | Extreme flexibility | High surface coverage | Easy application Smooth, consistent finish | VOC exempt in all 50 states Made in the U.S.A.
