Ceramic coating involves the use of a product called Cerakote™ developed by NIC Industries™ after great research into firearms and their respective coatings. Cerakote provides excellent corrosion protection, outstanding abrasion resistance, extreme hardness, and unmatched durability. Each coating has a unique ultra slick feel, while providing sleek satin or matte finish.
These coatings surpass Teflon and most other coatings for wear resistance by well over 60%, according to testing by an independent laboratory. Coating hardness is approximately 9H and is 1 to 1.5 mil in thickness. One example of durability has been exposure to a 5% salt spray in excess of 1000 hours with no adverse affect.
