Still confused about Cerakote?
Cerakote comes in a few varieties, they differ in the application process and the final properties of the finish. Cerakote H-Series is the standard for firearm applications, it is oven cured and is available in hundreds of colors. The Elite or E-Series is a step above, offering the highest level of abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistance. Other varieties are also available for objects which cannot withstand oven curing, parts which are exposed to sunlight and even automotive engine parts which need protection for extreme temperatures.
