WHAT IS CERAKOTE™?

Cerakote is a ceramic coating that is most commonly applied to metals but is nearly limitless to the number of applications it can be used for.

 

 

Unlike other “Ceramic” coatings, Cerakote™ is formulated from the molecular level. All Cerakote™ products begin with a liquid resin, and during the curing process, the resin forms a 3-D ceramic matrix. Additional property-enhancing materials are combined with the raw resin and trapped within the matrix. This technology creates a durable, heat resistant coating and makes Cerakote™ the premier ceramic coating available on the market today.

 

 

When applied, Cerakote™ is anywhere from

.0005" - .001" (8-25 microns) in thickness, which is a big plus when dealing with very tight and crucial tolerances.

 

 

The unique, ceramic-based formulation used in the entire range of Cerakote™ enhances a number of physical characteristics.

 

 

The Cerakote™ High Temperature (C-Series) Air Cure Ceramic Coatings are designed to protect both metal and non-metal substrates. Additonally, these Coatings are formulated to withstand extreme temperatures (in exess of 1100°C) without discoloring with superior long term performance. This makes the coating ideal for exhausts, pistons and other components for high temperature systems. C-Series Air Cure Ceramic Coatings maintain excellent adhesion even after repeated thermal cycling.

 

 

Additionally, this coating functions with superior protection against corrosion, thermal shock and thermal barriers for thermally-sensitive applications.

 

 

State-of-the-art, Cerakote™ Firearms Coating (H-Series) is an oven-cured,

ceramic-based coating, This coating can also be applied to a vast variety of other applications as the unique formulation used by Cerakote enhances a number of physical performance properties including:

 

Abrasion and Wear Resistance

Corrosion Resistance

Chemical Resistance

Impact Strength

and

Hardness

 

 

Cerakote™ Firearms Coating (H-Series) is the coating to use in Corrosive Environments.

 

 

Also included in the Cerakote™ range is Micro Slick, a dry film lubricant that ia applied to piston skirts and other internal components to reduce friction and wear.

 

 

Cerakote has become the choice of many manufactures for exhaust and engine applications and so much more.
