is a two-part chemical coating that was created specifically for firearms. It is a hard polymer that can even be applied so that it is self lubricating. DuraCoat
stands up to extreme oil, solvent, cleaning chemicals, and is wear resistant. It resists 100 inch pounds of direct impact and 80 inch pounds of reverse impact. DuraCoat
has passed a 300 hour salt spray test, which far exceeds military requirements for firearms finishes therefore DuraCoat
is well suited for salty environments. One of DuraCoat’s
attributes is its extreme ability to resist salt corrosion. A firearm coated with DuraCoat
simply will not rust... EVER!
Major manufacturers such as DS Arms utilize DuraCoat
finishes on their rifles. DuraCoat
has proven to hold up extremely well under field conditions. Even on parts such as FAL bolts, which are subject to significant abrasion due to the extreme cycling of the bolt, DuraCoat
has held up well and proven to be extremely durable.
is not a flash cure application that will become brittle after curing resulting in chipping and flaking. DuraCoat
cures slowly so that after it cures it remains flexible which contributes to its excellent abrasion and wear resistance. We like to say DuraCoat
doesn't wear out, it wears in. DuraCoat is permanent and with normal use, a firearm finished with DuraCoat
will last several lifetimes. DuraCoat
can be applied over just about any surface including metal, plastic, or wood as long as the surface is properly prepared. We have had great success using it on forearm rail covers such as the textured Magpul covers.

can withstand temperatures as high as 500-600 degrees Fahrenheit. With "normal" shooting, your barrel will never get close to being that hot. If you are fortunate to own a transferable machine gun, or if you like to "blaze" with your semi-auto, do not put DuraCoat
on your barrel, as your barrel temperature will rise over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. In those cases we recommend DuraHeat
