Firearm owners, much like owners of cars, furniture, and a host of other items and objects will most often want to know they can protect these firearms in terms of which they ensure that surfaces are not exposed to, for example, oxidation and corrosion which can lead to rust – which you do not want to happen as it looks unsightly and may even cause that rifle, pistol or other firearms to malfunction in severe cases.

Fortunately, there are always solutions, one of which is the well-known Cerakote. This is a type of coating and ceramic-based finish for guns and other firearms, as well as certain other metals and even plastics that remind of paint and sealant. It is designed and manufactured to be used to help offer protection from abrasion, resistance against wear, and also to help ensure ongoing strength and durability of any such surfaces that it is applied to.

Of course, there are other products available in addition to Cerakote, but this is one of those whose effectiveness has been proven over and over again. As for other protective gun finishes, popular products include, for example, Nickel Boron, Duracoat, ...
... and Chroming as options to help protect guns’ and rifles’ – and pistols – from the onset of oxidation and rust among issues owners have to deal with in terms of maintenance and the peace of mind they need that their firearms and accessories are protected.

These products are available from different retailers and preferred suppliers all over the world, whether you live in Australia or Texas, Georgia or Colorado. Ceramic-based paints are mixed with epoxy hardeners making sure the ratios to be used are followed correctly to come up with a great product. This is the responsibility of the manufacturer of such products to ensure the customers are offered a reliable coating from a reliable source, i.e. the manufacturer or their marketers that supply these to the public.

A leading company prefers for their coatings to be applied by a professional with the correct tools and knowledge to ensure clients’ firearms are treated correctly. Of course, steps have to be followed to ensure the correct processes are followed by, firstly, making sure the firearm is properly disassembled and parts are kept apart and yet close together so you do not lose them. It is always advisable to have this process seen by a professional such as a gunsmith if you are not familiar with this level of disassembly – and reassembly afterward.

Thereafter the parts should be degreased in a non-water-based degreaser so that they are soaked for a good 10-15 minutes after which they are air-dried. Now the surface should be prepared properly, according to certain prescribed processes that include an even, thorough blasting of said parts. Blasting is affected with, for example, aluminum oxide.

Once this has been taken care of, racking and masking are looked at: hang or place parts so you can spray all parts equally well and comfortably. Thereafter parts are heated in the oven to ensure any last contaminants are removed. Thereafter parts are removed from the oven and given time to cool down.

Mix your Cerakote or other coatings according to the manufacturer’s ratio charts. Add hardener and mix. Mask off all parts which you are not going to coat. Hang parts so they do not touch anything during the application. Make sure you do not coat the firearm’s springs, plug up the bore so no coating goes inside, make sure you wear protective gear such as gloves and safety glasses, for example.

Now the mixture is poured into a spraying gun. Give yourself a practice run first. Then spray when you feel confident. Cure all parts in the oven afterward and use the manufacturer’s indications. Cooldown all parts and reassemble.

All of the above may sound fairly straightforward which, for those with experience, it is. But in most cases it is advisable to ask someone – or a service provider – with experience to help you as the process is intricate and not meant for everyone to try on their own. However, many a coating has been applied by individuals that order these and then go ahead successfully.
