Cerakote: What is it and does it work for you?

Like Powder Coating, Cerakote is a coating we often get questions about. Highly used in the gun industry for part protection, Cerakote provides a robust and strong shield against the elements for gun owners as well many other parts.

From Cerakote’s official website (Source):

Cerakote is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Each of these properties is rigorously tested to guarantee that Cerakote products remain at the forefront of the ceramic coatings market. Cerakote ceramic coatings utilize state-of-the-art technology to out-perform any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications.

Also, from Cerakote’s website, their range of Cerakote Coatings can be used in a number of different ways(Source:
