New! DLC (Diamond Like Coating)

DLC is one of the hardest black finish that can be applied to metal surfaces. The hardness scale required to gauge this finish is the Vickers Scale and exceeds the levels available for Rockwell Hardness ratings. For instance, Chrome has a Rockwell Hardness of between 65 and 70 C scale. This translates to about 1000 on the Vickers Hardness ratings. DLC ranges from 2500 to 3300 on the Vickers scale. The friction coefficient is the same as Chrome 0.1. The coating thickness is less than Chrome and should not affect the parts fitting after finish is applied. Corrosion resistance is about 75% of hard Chrome.

The negative aspect of DLC is the cost. Below is the estimated pricing for this finish based on a standard size pistol or revolver:

Matte 100% $540.00
Brushed Flats/Matte Rounds $540.00
100% Brushed $565.00
Alpha Bright $665.00
Master Bright $990.00
ADDITIONAL CHARGES:
Disassembly/Reassembly $55.00-$100.00
Example: 1911 style pistols or Colt, S&W and Ruger revolvers are $55. Double action-single action semi-auto pistols are $85
Shipping plus Insurance, averages $1 per $100, for shipping to/from the applicators of the DLC coating
