Cerakote coating is ceramic based and is a type of coating similar to paint. Cerakote has been developed for firearm coatings and is applied on a chemical coating on metal surfaces in the form of a thin film. This application provides a high quality long life to the metal surface and provides the following features.
- To Reduce Damages Due to Wear and Friction
- Abrasion Resistance
- Chemical Resistance
- Corrosion Resistance
- Excellent Adhesion
- Advantage of Application in Low Tolerances (15-20µm)
- Coated Parts Can Be Preserved On The Shelf For A Long Time
- High Impact Strength
- Application on Various Surfaces
It is used in parts such as firearms, knives, valves, equipment in contact with salt water, consumable electronics material, optical parts, engine components and pistons.
Cerakote performance is measured with mandrel Bending (ASTM D522), Abrasion (ASTM D4060), Adhesion (ASTM D3359) (FED-STD-141), Corrosion Resistance tests (ASTM B117), Impact Test (ASTM D2794), Coating Thickness (ASTM B244, ASTM B499)
