What are the advantages of a Cerakote Bar vs. a Hard Chrome bar?
Cerakote finish provides superior corrosion and abrasion resistance. In salt spray testing (accelerated corrosion testing) a Hard Chrome bar shows signs of rust in approximately 24 hours. A Cerakote coated bar will withstand rust as long as 70 times longer than hard chrome and even stainless steel under corrosion salt spray testing. Nothing ever produced rivals the corrosion and abrasion resistance of this finish. Cerakote is used by major firearm manufacturers around the world in some of the most abusive and corrosive environments. Hard Chrome is a non-corrosion resistant coating and NOT desirable in wet or humid environments.
