Cerakote Coating for Your Firearm

Cerakote is a specialized coating that can be applied to all sorts of materials; wood, polymers, metals, and plastics that is composed of a polymer-ceramic compound. The ceramic coating benefits the firearm by protecting and enhancing physical components including:

  • Decreasing the wear and tear over time
  • Providing abrasion, corrosion, and chemical resistance
  • Improving strength and durability of the coated parts

This type of gun coating is part sealant, part finish — perfect for extending the life and longevity of your firearm. Up until a few of decades ago, guns were protected with either/or stainless steel and blued steel to protect them from the elements. While these materials do tend to hold up well, they are not exactly water-proof and require a layer of water-repellant oil to keep water at bay and protect the surfaces of your firearm from the elements that may cause rust and corrosion.

The ceramic composite crafts a solid finish that is extremely tough and hard so if dropped it can withstand impacts, scratches and dings. Cerakote is a great finish to have your gunsmith apply to aftermarket firearms to give it both a nice look and a high-quality, durability upgrade Cerakote Glock.

What are the benefits of Cerakote?

Cerakote is in a class of its own when it comes to gun finishes and coatings. Cerakote acts as a lubricant and many firearm users have noticed they can use much less of gun lubricant on their cerakote finished firearms. Also, compared to other lubricants, users generally report that it attracts less of the unwanted gunky stuff such as dirt, dust, and other particles, thus keeping your customized firearm cleaner and functioning at optimal standards.

Cerakote is also ideal for those who live in wet and extremely humid conditions, efficiently protecting your weapon from corrosion and oxidation, so if you tend to sweat a lot in the hotter seasons or live on a coast, Cerakote coatings keep your firearm dry.

Cerakote is also advantageous because it is available in a variety of colors and patterns (you no longer have to opt for only standard black or military green!). Now your firearm can look cool and color-coordinated to match your favorite vehicle’s interior or your favorite jacket. Pick from Atomic Yellow or Hello Kitty Pink instead!
