Pirate Firearms and Trading Co.
A full service coating company.
Polymer-Ceramic coating 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.
Nitromet Salt Bath Nitrocarburizing (Melonite, Tennifer, Black Nitride)
This process is the new industry leader in bore coatings for firearm barrels—achieving a 30% greater lifespan in the bore than chrome! It provides a Rc 55 surface through a high temperature diffusion process. This technology is applicable to metals that can withstand the processing temperatures such as barrels, gas blocks, magazines, steel receivers, etc.
Electroless Nickel (EN)
An Electroless nickel coating is a dense alloy of nickel and phosphorus. Our engineered Electroless nickel plating processes can be tailored to provide various levels of hardness, wear, abrasion and corrosion resistance, and lubricity. We offer Low, Medium, and High Phosphorous plating processes, as well as Electroless Nickel with Teflon, EN with Boron Nitride, and black EN plating.
Electroless Nickel with Teflon
This coating is an electroless nickel with Teflon particles co-deposited within the matrix. The coating is designed to release Teflon particles, the nickel wears and more Teflon releases. Usually used for release properties in the mold and die industry. Limited wear and high temperature applications.
Black Nickel with Boron Nitride
This coating withstands higher temperature and pressures better than EN Teflon.The boron nitride particles are a much better choice than Teflon for firearms applications. Still not as wear resistant as NiB-X but suitable for some wear applications.
The coating has a Rc 70 and a coefficient of friction of .06. NiB maintains its properties in high temperature applications and impervious to most chemicals (Nitric Acid notwithstanding). It has the same material properties throughout the structure of the coating so integrity and properties are maintained throughout the thickness. Coating can be duplexed with sublayers or topcoats to enhance specific properties customers may desire.
