What is Cerakote?

Cerakote for Your Firearm

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

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

This gun coating is part sealant, part finish — perfect for extending the longevity of your firearm. Up until a couple of decades ago, guns were protected with stainless and blued steel to protect them from the elements. While these materials hold up well, they are not water-proof and require a layer of water-repellant oil to keep water at bay and protecting it from rust and corrosion.

The ceramic composite crafts a solid finish that is 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 durability upgrade.

Cerakote is a great option because not only is it water-proof and able to fully protect a firearm, it is also available in a myriad of finishes to create anything from a bold to subtle look.

What are the benefits of Cerakote?

Cerakote is in a division of its own when it comes to gun coatings. Cerakote acts as a lubricant and many firearm users have noticed they can use much less of gun lubricant. And compared to other lubricants, users report that it attracts less of the unwanted stuff such as dirt, dust, and other particles — keeping it cleaner and functioning optimally.

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

Cerakote is advantageous because it is available in a variety of colors and patterns — so long to a standard black or military green! Now your gun can look cool and fashioned to match your cars interior or your favorite camo. Pick from Zombie Green and Prison Pink instead!
