The Exact Group is proud to be a Certified Applicator of Cerakote - the world leader in thin film ceramic coating technology.

What is Cerakote Coating?

Cerakote ceramic coating is a specialised protective finish that can be applied to multiple substrates including:

  • Ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • Alloys, polymers, composites
  • Wood and plastics

The Benefits of Cerakote Ceramic Coating

The highest performing ceramic coating on the market, Cerakote offers:

  • Unmatched abrasion resistance withstanding impact, scratch and gouging better than other coating systems
  • A corrosion protective coating that can withstand temperatures of up to 1000 degree celsius without spalling, cracking or flaking
  • Superior chemical resistance to hydraulic fluids, fuels, solvents, acids, de-icing products and commercial strength disinfectants
  • UV Stability protecting substrates from oxidation and degradation
  • An alternative to plating and pre-treatments replacing anodising and nickel plating, and eliminating the need and expense of primers

Cerakote’s single layer coating system, only 20-50 microns in thickness, is composed of a polymer-ceramic compound, which replaces multi-layer paint and powder coating systems. It offers ultra-light weight coverage and protection, and provides a thermal barrier and heat dissipation.

Available in over 200 RAL colours, with the ability to colour match to customer requirements, Cerakote can be used in industries ranging from automotive to aerospace and from consumer to defence.

 Cerakote is an industry performance leader against:

  • Salt Spray Corrosion – ASTM B117
  • Abrasion Test – ASTM D4060
  • Chemical Resistance – 24hr Submersion Test
  • Hardness – ASTM D3363
  • Adhesion – ASTM D3359
  • Durability
  • Impact Resistance – ASTM D2794
  • 45˚ Flammability  – 14 CFR 25.853(a)
  • Toxicity – Boeing BSS7239 A
  • Smoke Density – AITM 2.0007B
