We use NIC industries Cerakote™ Ceramic Coatings for High Temp Applications and Firearms! Cerakote High Temperature ceramic coatings are the industry leader in high temperature exhaust coatings.
What is Cerakote?
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.
Cerakote™ Ceramic Coatings
Cerakote High Temperature ceramic coatings are the industry leader in high temperature exhaust coatings.
Cerakote® is a ceramic based coating that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers, composites, hydrographics, PVD, wood and various other substrates. The proprietary formulation used for Cerakote Ceramic Coatings offers industry leading durability, hardness, scratch resistance, corrosion resistance, flexibility and chemical resistance. Cerakote Coatings are developed, tested and manufactured at our facility in Southern Oregon. Every coating is tested against ASTM standards, guaranteeing that Cerakote Coatings meet or exceed the industry leading performance results.
There are two classifications of Cerakote: Standard and High Temperature. Within these two classifications, there are multiple options (heat cure, air cure, etc.).
The High Temperature coatings are typically used for exhaust systems and can withstand temperatures up around 1800 degrees F. These are often used in turbo housings, fireplaces / industrial production/oven equipment, exhaust stacks and more.
The standard temperature coatings are more resistant to scratching, marring, chemical and UV fading/damage. These coatings typical withstand temperatures around 500 degrees F. There are typically used on firearms and other items that do not need as much heat protection, but may face other environmental issues. We have lots of colors to chose from and use these coatings on various items (wheels, brake calipers, knife blades, sunglasses, bicycles, engine parts, firearms and more).
