What is Cerakote?

Cerakote is the World’s Toughest and finest finish, which can best be described as a ceramic-based “shell” that adheres to metals, plastics, polymers, and wood. The Cerakote seal acts as a shield for any damaging compounds that would lessen value and, more importantly, hinder potential functionality.

Cerakote has gained its reputation for being the finest finish in real world use. Laboratory testing has ensured a Cerakote finish meets the most stringent criteria to be called the World’s Toughest and Finest finish.  Cerakote is able to withstand over 3,500 hours of salt-water spray without any corrosion being detected. Eliminating corrosion especially benefits humid environments.

You no longer need to worry about your favorite bore scrubber or cleaner damaging the finish on your favorite items.  Cerakote was tested by dipping finished parts in several chemicals ranging from solvent cleaner, WD40, acetone, paint thinner, and more and proved to have excellent chemical resistance.  Cerakote even was even able to obtain a good chemical resistance rating after soaking in a 5% Hydrocholoric acid solution.
Cerakote coatings improve performance and reliability over conventional finishes. This state-of-the-art coating technology out-performs any competitive coating in both laboratory settings and real world applications.

How does it work?

The process begins with completely stripping the original parts down to all of its components and cleaning any surface particles. The parts are then carefully sandblasted to remove the existing factory finish allowing the Cerakote™ to properly adhere to all the nooks and crannies of the item being coated. Once stripped and cleaned, the parts are then heated in an oven to remove any other solvents or contaminants. The parts are masked for any designs or patterns being applied and then hung so that they can be coated. Parts are sprayed at 1/1000th of an inch thickness, ensuring that tolerances are kept, manufacturer markings are visible and each nook that makes your gun, knife, automobile part, or other item remains unique. After being sprayed the parts are then returned to the oven for curing. Once complete, the parts are then reassembled.


A variety of color and pattern options allow you to customize your Cerakote finish.  Modern Tactical has over 70 colors to choose from.  Pattern options provide additional customizing beyond a solid color.  Our Cerakote™ Applicators can make sure you not only protect your cherished prized possession, but also give it the appearance you never thought was possible.
