Scallops, Rust, and Cerakote - Oh, My!

Scallop season is upon us! This means snorkeling, fun in the sun, boating trips and uh-oh -- you hear a splash and see your firearm hit the water after your boat hits a wave. Instantly you jump off to grab your gun all the while dreading corrosion and rust. Well, fear not! There’s no need to be scared of impending damage if you have a Cerakote finish.

What is the magic coating called Cerakote?

According to the manufacturer Cerakote, the coating is a “Polymer-Ceramic Composite” “that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness.”

Not just a cool “paint” job.

Cerakote can help you maintain and prevent a scratch and rust-free firearm, but can also be aesthetically pleasing and can be applied in many different colors and patterns. Due to the popularity and durability that has been proven by Cerakote’s rigorous test, many manufacturers such as Beretta, FN, and Benelli offer upgrades to the finish straight from the factory.

Protect your gun.

Whether you are investing in a firearm for protection is or want to make it your own, Cerakote is the economical finish that can protect your firearm. To learn more, contact HNR Gunworks at 352-503-6285 or visit
