There's a fairly good chance that Cerakote is currently the most popular professional firearms coating in the United States. We've seen it on a number of custom Aero Precision receivers, the works of SSViBlown Deadline, Red Beard Cerakote, and we covered their new Elite Coating in issue 29 of RECOIL. While one can certainly pick a color off the shelf, it's the custom mixing that makes for a truly unique coating color. Recently Cerakote released a video about custom mixing their Glacier Series.


Industry News: Cerakote Glacier Series

Here's what they have to say about them:

For a customizable, high temp exhaust coating, check out our Glacier Series. These coatings have exceptional thermal barrier properties, are corrosion resistant and can withstand thermal shock without degrading or losing their color.

Our Glacier coatings come in five, air-cured, mixable colors. With mixing, these five stock colors give you the ability to greatly expand your color options, satisfying those customers who desire a custom look on their project. For example, a 75/25 mix of Glacier Gold and Glacier Black creates a warm bronze. Changing the ratio to 50/50 results in a darker, richer color. Be sure to watch our video below for more details:

Cerakote does have suggestions for mixes, and you can see the results below:

Industry News. What are you seeing here? Just as the tagline reads — industry news. This is a product (or service) announcement. It is not an endorsement. It is not a review. It is not an advertisement.

Posts on labeled as Industry News are advisory notifications only. Information contained therein is likely provided by the individual manufacturer (or service provider), provided to RW and passed along to our readers as a notification only. Such articles do not represent our tacit approval, nor (unless labeled SPONSORED) were they paid for. RECOIL publishes not just for a fraction of the gun-owning community, but all of it. Individual editorial staff member opinions are not the sole arbiter of what news we present. What one person derides, another will extol. One of RECOIL's responsibilities is to inform readers of new products or services from manufacturers, training organizations, and the like. RECOIL readers have made it very clear this is something they want to see, and frequently. Some of those products will be chosen for further coverage or evaluation. Some will not. Some may have great promise or potential. Others will do nothing but prove the old adage, A fool and his money are soon parted. Readers should form their own conclusions, if appropriate. Rest assured if a member of the RECOIL staff is providing an opinion, you will know about it.
