   DuraCoat is the latest in firearm finishing technology. No other commercially manufactured and packaged firearm finishing system has the combination of versatility, durability, and user friendly characteristics of DuraCoat. We offer an ever expanding line of standard colors. DuraCoat can also be custom tinted to any color on the planet. DuraCoat comes in a standard matte or semi gloss (HK) finish. We can custom manufacture any sheen level. DuraCoat can be applied to ferrous metals, alloys, synthetics, woods and more. DuraCoat can be used to create endless effects (i.e.: texturing, shadowing, etc.) . DuraCoat dry film thickness can be varied from .25 to 1.5 mL. Additives such as prisms and flakes can be used with DuraCoat.

How durable is DuraCoat? 
DuraCoat is permanent. With normal use, a firearm finished with DuraCoat will last several lifetimes. DuraCoat, like fine wine, gets better with age. As we say, "DuraCoat wears in, not out."
What is DuraCoat? 
DuraCoat is a two-part chemical coating. Unlike other firearm finishes, DuraCoat was created specifically for firearms. Most other firearm finishes are "spin-off's" from other industries.
Is DuraCoat Teflon based?
No. Teflon is a lubricating coating which is great for internals, but will not wear as well as DuraCoat on the exterior surface of a firearm. DuraCoat's combination of elasticity and hardness creates a finish impervious to impact, scratching and the elements. Some users say DuraCoat displays some lubricating qualities, but this phenomenon was never intended when DuraCoat was created.
Will DuraCoat 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.
I hunt along saltwater. Will DuraCoat withstand the salty environment? 
Certainly. DuraCoat is well suited for salty environments. One of DuraCoat's attributes is its extreme ability to resist salt corrosion. A firearm coated with DuraCoat simply will not rust...EVER!
Will DuraCoat burn off my barrel? 
DuraCoat can withstand temperatures as high as 600 degrees F. With "normal" shooting, your barrel will never get close to being that hot. If you are fortunate enough to own a transferable machine gun, or if you like to "blaze" with your semi-auto, we can use DuraHeat on your barrel, which can handle temperatures up to 1,800 degrees F.
How easy is DuraCoat removed? 
Not easy at all. The elastic nature of DuraCoat resists blasting. We use a special blast media that safely removes DuraCoat without damaging the surface of the firearm. We recommend lightly blasting the surface, being cautious not to remove any DuraCoat. Just "beat up" the DuraCoat giving it "tooth" so we can apply a new layer of DuraCoat and it has something to adhere to.
Which is more durable, DuraCoat or DuraBake? 
Both DuraCoat and DuraBake are extremely durable. The advantage of DuraBake is its availability in an incredible seelction of colors.
How come other firearm finish manufacturers boast hardness, but make no mention of elasticity? 
In the case of firearm finishes, a common misconception is "harder is better". This is faulty "old school thinking". Hardness means brittle and brittle means chipping. DuraCoat, being elastic, will not chip.  Elasticity provides protection by "giving" when confronted with impact. Elasticity also helps prevent scratches and mars.
