Please contact us for more information
Please do not send us any parts without prior approval.
Production/contract work is running on schedule.
Please do not let anyone, blast or chemically remove your factory anodizing to replace it with a Ceramic coating. If you get a receiver/frame done by a Ceramic/Coating vendor, make sure they do not remove the factory anodizing. If this is done, it is almost impossible to go back to anodizing. Improper removal of the factory anodize film can result in a loss of dimension. This loss of dimension will be covered up by the thick epoxy paint. It may look and fit fine when you get it back from coating, but be warned. Under that thick paint, the base aluminum may be worn beyond acceptable tolerances.
No Ceramic coating is harder than Type III Hardcoat Anodizing. Try running a steel file over a Ceramic coated flat surface, the coating will just rub off. Do the same tests with our MIL-A-8625F Type III anodize film and the file will just skip and glide on top of the film. Do it over and over without damaging the base aluminum. That is how Type III anodize film is tested by DOD for abrasion. Do you still want to trade your factory Type III anodize film for a Ceramic coating? I do not think so!
Our service quality is worth the wait, do not settle for less!
