Cerakote Elite

Cerakote Elite integrates an advanced resin technology and the highest-performance engineered ceramics to take our Cerakote H-Series to the next level. Cerakote Elite is a world class, thin film ceramic coating with increased resistance to abrasion, corrosion, and chemicals. It offers a very low coefficient of friction, rivaling Teflon. It’s engineered for a distinctive high-end look and feel. Cerakote Elite also has improved hardness and lubricity in a thinner application.

Cerakote Elite recommended applications include, but are not limited to: Firearms, knives, tools, eyewear, consumer electronics, wearables, industrial valves, sporting and athletic equipment, robotics, audio equipment, fresh and salt water applications, and any other application requiring a tough, thin, and durable finish.

Cerakote Elite is available in nine, modern, earth-tone colors that are capable of being mixed or patterned to create custom high-performances finishes.
