Cerakote Finishing

Ceramic Finishes for Durability and Style

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.

What are the disadvantages of Cerakote?

One disadvantage of Cerakote is that, while it helps protect against rust, it's not rustproof — no coating is. When we sharpen our blades or laser our logo, we expose the steel to oxygen, creating a place where rust can start. Another disadvantage is that Cerakote wears less gracefully than Parkerizing.

How long does Cerakote last?

You don't have to worry about it peeling or flaking off over time. A Cerakote finish should last for several years if it is applied correctly.
