What is Cerakote?

Cerakote is the most durable firearms coating on the market today. Cerakote is a ceramic based finish manufactured by NIC Industries. It is used by more OEM firearms manufacturers than any other finish, including Colt, Thompson, Sig Sauer, FN and Nighthawk Customs just to name a few. Don’t waste your money on other products, because Cerakote is the only finish that supports this claim with scientific data and independent testing performed by ASTM International. View the ASTM Testing DATA here.

Cerakote finishes provide the most durable, self-lubricating, heat dissipating finish available for firearms, mechanical automotive parts, headers, throttle bodies, pistons, radiators and much more. Cerakote protects your investment from rust and corrosion, insures function, reliability and if you are an outdoors man, we offer peace of mind in knowing that your investment is protected from the elements. All of our work is backed by our industry leading warranty.

Why Tactical Graphics LLC?

In addition to being factory certified, we provide some of the highest quality Cerakote firearm refinishing services on the market. We know our guns and retain two certified gunsmiths on staff. Most applicators advertise “Full Gun” in their pricing, but what they do not coat the “full gun”. At Tactical Graphics we we pride ourselves on the extensive knowledge of our staff that know the proper techniques to coat every part in your firearm. 

We don’t just spray some paint on a firearm, we fully disassemble your firearm and do extensive prep work to the substrate before coating every piece on your gun (except for the springs). Once we refinish your firearm, we reassemble your firearm, fitting every piece to insure reliability and safety.

Tactical Graphics Not Only Does it Right…We Go The Extra Mile

Down here in the south, rust and politicians are a guns worst enemy. Although we do our best to defeat gun control, Cerakote is the best at defeating rust! If an applicator is advertising they coat your full gun but only spray the main parts, you are being robbed of the full benefits of cerakote.

It is what is under the surface that makes or breaks a gun. If you are unsure which applicator to use, just ask the above when getting your quote. Most charge extra to apply finish to every single part. Tactical Graphics LLC retains the competitive edge, not only are we priced competitively but we coat every part and a magazine for no extra charge.
