Cerakote® is a polymer-ceramic protective coating that is commonly applied to firearms to protect them and/or change their color. Its name is a compound derived from ‘cera’ from the ceramics used in its products, and ‘koat’ which is a cool way of saying ‘coat.’ For this reason, you may see it spelled Ceracoat by mistake. One of the great qualities of this material is that it forms the very thin layer necessary for use with items such as guns, which require fine mechanics and tight tolerances.
So how do your guns benefit from the application of Cerakote®?
By applying this material to your firearms, you make them resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and moisture. It also bolsters the gun’s strength and hardness making it highly impact resistant, hardy, and less likely to get scratches and nicks.
Another plus is that the coating acts as an effective lubricant meaning you don’t need to use so much oil when lubing your weapon. It also attracts far less in the way of dust and dirt than a gun that is not coated.
Cerakote® treated guns are resistant to the elements including pollutants and chemicals such as salt and acid rain. So, if you live near the coast, a river, or estuary, for example, this process will help keep your gun in good shape.
A coating is also useful in hot environments when your gun might be subject considerable perspiration. This covers both humid regions and dry and dusty areas such as deserts. As you can see, this sophisticated process bequeaths a host of benefits onto your guns. So, get in touch with Aviwraps today to see how we can help you keep your firearms in peak condition
