We were one of the first companies to be certified by N.I.C. as a CeraKote Applicator.CeraKote is our top of the line coating. If you want the very best coating available look no further. 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 "C" series which is an ambient cure coating, "FX" series, "H" series & "E" series which are a thermal cure coating. Unlike Teflon based gun coatings the "C" & "H" series of CeraKote offer unequaled levels of hardness and abrasion resistance because of their unique ceramic backbone.
CeraKote is available in over 150 standard colors and many custom mixes we have on file. 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 throughout 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.
The "H" series was designed as a two part thermal cure system. It provides a very high quality, long lasting finish with high corrosion resistance. It offers unparalleled levels of abrasion resistance and hardness because of the two part component system. The "H" series has a viscosity #2 Zahn cup of 13.0 sec, an optimal film thickness of 0.5 to 1.0 mils, passes the 5% salt spray test (ASTM B117) in excess of 2,500 hrs., has a pencil scratch hardness (ASTM D3363) of 7h, the adhesion cross cut tape (ASTM D3359 of 5B, and heat stability of 525 degrees f for extended periods without failing.
