This large in-house production site has numerous state-of-the-art Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) machines that can create over 20+ custom coatings. Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) or DLC coatings are applied to improve resistance to everyday components to improve wear and tear. The coating properties improve the overall hardness of the material and its ability to withstand higher temperatures. Additionally, our coatings provide resistance to corrosion along with improving the lifespan of your weapon.

You can choose from a variety of coatings and finished polishes. A selection of reflective or non-reflective surfaces is also offered.
