How durable is DuraCoat / CeraKote? DuraCoat and CeraKote is permanent. With normal use, a firearm finished with DuraCoat and CeraKote will last several lifetimes. What is DuraCoat? DuraCoat is a two part chemical coating. Unlike other firearm finishes, DuraCoat was created specifically for firearms. Other firearm finishes are “spin-off’s” from other industries.

What is the difference between DuraCoat and CeraKote? CeraKote is a ceramic based product; DuraCoat is a chemical based product. Cerakote requires oven curing at high temperatures; DuraCoat does not. If a Cerakoted weapon becomes scratched or damaged all of the finish must be stripped and then refinished; a DuraCoated weapon does not. We cannot offer our touch up services on CeraKote finishes as we do with our DuraCoat finishes. Will DuraCoat / CeraKote adhere to hard coat anodizing and Parkerizing? DuraCoat loves hard coat anodizing and Parkerizing as a base. Both processes leave a good rooting surface for DuraCoat.

DuraCoat adheres very well to stainless steel as well. Any Blued weapon must be stripped, media blasted, and then parkerized before we can apply a DuraCoat Finish. CeraKote adheres best to raw media blasted metals. Yes, we can apply DuraCoat and CeraKote to any wood furniture or stock. We strip, sand, repair damage, and then reseal the wood before we apply the finish. We specialize in breathing new life into old, tired, and worn out weapons. We can leave the wood checkering or glass over them. Cerakote provides a harder finish than Duracoat.

There is a misconception in the world and that is that harder is always better when in fact it is the exact opposite. In the world of race cars, boats, and guns you need fledibility. I believe, it has been a long time since my work with cerakote, that cerakote is still a teflon based paint. Cerakotes chemical makeup and harder finish makes it more prone to chipping, cracking, flaking, and wear. Now Duracoat is a two part paint that was developed by LCW based on a paint made by Sherman Williams that was developed for Naval ships. Reason being that this paint was created for the Navy with the requirement that it be tough and wear proof yet flexible to conform with the hull. That is why Duracoat conforms to many military standards. Duracoat is able to flex, expand, and contract with the surface it is bonded with. Now, cerakote is still a very good option. I have worked with both and I perfer Duracoat.
