I have a rifle or two that I'm considering having done with Cerakote. I'm told it's better than Duracoat, which I do happen to like. Any input?

Anyone??????


Also, who did it and how much did it cost?

What makes it different from the other spray and bake finishes?

It has a very fine ceramic particles added to the coating. You can run the gun dry and it feels like its lubed. Its a harder finish, Duracote is a 2h hardness Cerakote is a 7h. Its really impressive stuff..

I was a BIG Duracote user, Till I tried the Cerakote. I will not switch back.

What about abrasion resistance, i.e. scratches and the like?

Last time I checked it looked like only dealers could buy the stuff. Is that still true? I know caswells will sell you 3 or 4 colors but I don't need a fire-engine red AR.

My friend is a certified Duracoat applicator (he went to the class in Wisconsin at Lauer's). He has all the spray equipment and oven, etc. Can this equipment be used to apply Cerakote, or does it require special stuff?

All the same stuff to apply. You just put it on in thinner coats. And bake at 240-250 deg for 2 hrs. You can with cerakote coat the insides. Just watch you thickness.

Yes its dealers or applicators only. But If you want some let me know and I can get some of it to ship to ya.
