Although these symptoms are serious, trust our reviewers and us when we tell you…
It’s worth it.
What is Cerakote?
So what are the benefits of this coating on my parts?
Strength & Durability (compared to other coatings on the market Cerakote is among the strongest)
- Rust resistance (extremely rust resistant compared to other finishes)
Extremely thin (at .001 inches thick, this coating is lightweight and can be applied to the most precision fit areas)
Chemical resistant (no matter what degreaser, cleaner, or solvent you use this coating won’t be affected)
Low Friction (this means a smoother moving surface with less resistance and less heat created)
Heat Dissipation (The ceramic properties cause heat to go away faster)
Withstand High Temps (Cerakote can handle 500° -2,000° F depending on color)
Color options (a vast array of color options are available including our custom line of colors only available at OC Custom Coating)
Makes you Wiser (if wisdom is knowledge properly applied, and if you’ve taken the knowledge gained here and chosen this superior coating, then logic dictates that you’re wiser!)
How do you apply this phenomenal coating?
Let us walk you through the process that your parts will go through. Watch the videos below:
Cerakote™ Application Process:
See the Cerakote™ application process from start to finish:
See what happens when Cerakote™ is tested head to head with six other competitive finishes in the Taber Abrasion Test (ASTM D4060):
See what happens when Cerakote™ is tested with seven competitive finishes in the Salt Chamber Corrosion Test (ASTM B117):
Cerakote™ Wear Cycles
Testing Performed by an independent military approved testing facility proved that Cerakote™ is 7.5 times more wear resistant than other firearm coatings.
Cerakote™ Corrosion Testing
Corrosive salt spray testing showed that Cerakote™ can protect steel 50 times better than competitive firearm coatings. Cerakote™ salt spray testing is performed using a steel substrate to simulate real world application instead of using aluminum or Parkerizing. Salt spray is at twice the saline content of the ocean and is conducted at 95 degrees fahrenheit.
Cerakote™ Flexibility & Durability
Flexibility: Cerakote™ can undergo a 32% elongation without distortion or coating loss.
Durability: Cerakote™ products can withstand 160 lbs/in2 impact with no coating loss.
