We are pleased to offer a full or partial Cerakote ceramic coating service in the UK on all types of firearms, shotguns and related parts. Cerakote outperforms all other firearm coatings in all field tests. Our Cerakote options can be tailored to either individual needs or major runs of coatings for retailers, manufacturers and suppliers. Cerakote is available in a full range of colours and either high bake application or ultra-heat resistant air dry. More manufacturers choose Cerakote than any other firearm coating. As well as Cerakote we can also offer Hydrographic service, almost any shotgun, firearm or air rifle can be hydro-dipped in a variety of patterns from matt camouflages to special high gloss flames or one off designs for the younger shooters. Only high quality UV resistant clear coats are used including Automotive K and Cerakote ceramic clear coats.
