Cerama Coat is a specially formulated finish for firearms that provides extremely durable protection. The key to the super hard finish is ultra-fine ceramic molecules that actually crosslink and bond to the base material. A heating process after application forms the bond and hardens the finish. It makes your firearm highly resistant to scratching, chipping and gun solvents. It bonds to ferrous metals, alloys, stainless steel and synthetics that can be heated to 200 degrees F, and it can be applied over bare metal or existing blued, anodized or parkerized finish. It has a non-reflective matte finish and is highly resistant to scratching, chipping, and gun solvents.
