What is Cerakote?

Cerakote is a ceramic-based polymer coating that can be applied to metals, plastics, and wood. In the gun industry, it is used to protect the internal and external parts of a gun.

Cerakote increases the physical performance properties of firearms by giving exceptional wear resistance against scrapes, and against environmental and chemical corrosion, due to Cerakote’s ability to strengthen and actually increase the hardness of surfaces on which it is applied. These performance properties are consistently tested using state-of-the-art technology to ensure Cerakote coating outperforms all its competitors both in the lab and in authentic,
real-life situations.

Not only is Cerakote the most respected brand in the world, but also the elite creators of Cerakote formulate and manufacture proprietary thin film coatings that consistently outperform
the competition, making Cerakote an ideal choice for customers who demand the highest level
of performance when it comes to protection, customization, and/or restoration.

Cerakote inspires, creates, and drives demand when it comes to its distinct premium attributes. In addition, because of its strong industry-leading reputation, Cerakote coated firearms offer an exceptional level of pride with ownership.

We at Knight Rifles offer the Elite Series of Cerakote on our muzzleloaders simply because it is the highest performance, thin-film coating on the market due to its superior corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, UV stability, and durability.
