While PVD coatings are seldom discussed among the general public, the benefits of these coatings are well-known in industrial, machining, cutlery and as a firearm coating that is currently deployed on thousands of firearms the world over.
PVD FOR DURABILITY AND BASIC FIREARM APPLICATIONS
PVD (physical vapor deposition) coatings have been used in applications that demand increased durability, corrosion resistance, heat resistance, superior adhesion while maintaining an extremely thin coating. These inherent benefits lend themselves especially well to the incredibly demanding applications involved with firearms. Applications such as the internal working mechanisms that are exposed to high-speed, high-pressure friction; barrels that are exposed to the harshest climates and various contaminants that would cause major damage to other more typical coatings, as well as the physical bodies and frames that comprise the main structures of the weapons themselves while undergoing continual systematic abuse from without and within.
PVD-BLACKCAT™ TACTICAL COATING FOR MODERN SPORTING RIFLES
Our PVD BlackCat™ is the perfect match for the extremely demanding usage on modern sporting rifles such as the AR-15, pistols, sound suppressors, flash suppressors/muzzle brakes as well as gas blocks and much more. A perfect fit for the tactical applications that demand a deep, matte-black finish that will stand up to the harshest environments especially regarding heat, as our Black Cat withstands temperatures of up to 1700F for extended periods of time without compromising the integrity of the coating.
PVD-BLACKCAT™ TACTICAL COATING AND PERFORMANCE ENHANCMENT OF FIREARM FUNCTION
While the durability and cosmetic enhancements that are inherent with our BlackCat™ are certainly note-worthy, the natural lubricity of the coatings themselves offer increased functionality in the reciprocating actions of firearms. That means less need for dirt-grabbing oils and external lubrication. This also extends the life of the working components due to lessened friction as well as metal-to-metal contact.
PVD-BLACKCAT™ COATING IS A “GREEN” COATING
One thing we are especially proud of is the fact that our coatings use no harsh chemicals in their production and offer an amazingly durable, attractive, performance enhancing and 100% green firearm coating for the firearms enthusiast.
