FYI, H&M does Defiance's nitriding. Just for future knowledge.Thx, but not looking for information here on Nitriding process, I’ve directed my inquiry to the action manufacturer in that regard. And would only Consider their approved source.
Looking for information primarily on Coatings
Such as DLC, etc: and sources to contact.
Birdsong. It’s what they use on the nuclear attack submarines. It isn’t just a coating, it’s a chemical reaction that changes the surface of the metal to be resistant to rust. Even after the color wears off the metal is still protected. It is also self lubricating.Looking for options & reputable service providers for Coating a custom action & bolt.
Maybe DLC or ?
Not interested in Cerakote.
Other than CeroKote which you ruled out, there's DLC coating. SAC used to use this guy, not sure if they do anymore or not:
And geez, talk about splitting hairs here. Nitriding is the process, "nitride" is the resulting finish. Idiomatically "coating" is used to refer to finishes also because while a finish such as nitride can act as a base for subsequent coatings it also functions as a stand-alone coating if it's not over-coated. Parkerizing is a phosphate treatment process that results in a parkerized finish, commonly called phosphate coating. Six one half-dozen the other, it's the same thing. TiN is a coating also, has to be put on with PVD like the Ion coat I linked to.
