Case Study: Cerakote Gun Slide


Project Brief: A durable, eye-catching finish suitable for gun parts used in heavy-duty applications.
Industry: Recreational
Finish: Cerakote

Our customer sought a durable finish for the slide of their recreational Glock 17 gun, that could withstand demanding conditions, including grease contamination, moisture, extreme heat and impact, as well as general wear and tear. The finish also needed to be attractive and stand out against the black polymer frame.

As the Glock is an extremely well-engineered weapon with fine margins on assembly, it was also important to find a finish that was not too bulky and would not interfere with the assembly or workings of the gun.

The customer turned to DECO to finish the Glock in Cerakote, the ideal choice for coating their weapon due to its reputation as a high-strength, durable finish. Its extreme durability and impact resistance make it a suitable coating for an application where the gun could be otherwise damaged. A thin-film coating, Cerakote is ideal for weapons with moving parts or tight assembly, protecting the Glock without compromising its functionality.

With quick lead times and the ability to source a wide range of colours to suit customer needs, DECO rose to the challenge and provided a stunning, eye-catching finish that provides a bright pop of colour while protecting the weapon beneath from a variety of harsh conditions.
