    Let's just say I am working on this. As far as I know there is no one using it right now--lot of details to work out but it can be done.

    Did a little reading on the HVOF process, how do you plan on dealing with the temps? Gas temperature range: 4,6005,200F

    Thermal spraying definition: plasma spray, HVOF spray, arc spray, coating process

    How will this work on a firearm?

    Melonite looks promising but the access to the process might be sketchy at best. I have a barreled action that will have a moly action and stainless barrel. I will have to see if I can find anyone to get it processed for less than $200.

    The HIGH temp vapor deposition seems quite scary for gun parts.

    How well does Cerikote take touch up jobs? I am assuming it will not last on the bolt and raceway much better than duracoat does.

    Thanks.

    I did check out the advertised wear performance earlier. I just ever see those numbers stack up in real life. If company XXXX paid for the study it may look different. If anyone has used this on the inside of a rifle action for 8 thousand rounds before it fails I may believe it. I know your being helpful so please don't think I don't believe YOU I just don't believe what any company selling a product advertises on thier web page without actual customer feedback.
