The unique formulation used for Cerakote Firearm Coatings enhances a number of physical performance properties. Each of these properties is rigorously tested to guarantee that Cerakote products remain at the forefront of the firearm coatings market. To prove Cerakote is the leading firearm coating, NIC hired an independent military testing facility to perform a blind side by side comparison between Cerakote, KG Gun-Kote (listed as competitor 1) and DuraCoat Firearm Finish (listed as competitor 2). In every test Cerakote out performed both competitors products. All tests were performed in accordance to the ASTM test listed in the photo. The complete test report is available for review by contacting our Cerakote Customer Service department.
