PVD/DLC Coating PVD/DLC Coating

If you are looking for a high performance coating for your firearm that is durable and looks fantastic, then look no further than one of Evolution Armory's beautiful PVD selections.

Physical Vapor Deposition is a process used to provide hardness and abrasion resistance to machine parts and cutting tools in order to achieve maximum efficiency. The micronized nature of our PVD coatings ensures there are no perceivable layers of thickness added to the medium it is being applied to. This makes PVD coatings perfect for application to both firearms and firearm components.

The average micro hardness of PVD coatings are over 80 on the Rockwell hardness scale, yet does not effect the characteristics of the steel underneath. This provides excellent abrasion resistance and a lowered coefficient of friction, which results in less resistance and heat buildup. We recommend you keep the coated parts oiled to prevent corrosion.

Benefits of PVD Coating:
- Hard, scratch, and wear resistant
- Lubricious, corrosion, and chemical resistant
- Beautiful color
- No appreciable build-up to interfere with firearm operation
- Can be applied over a high polish finish

Please Note: Coating may not be able to be applied to metal that has been chromed, nitrided, or any other finish that requires a chemical strip.
