Equipment for PVD and DLC Firearms Coatings

Firearms and outdoor sports manufacturers, improve your products with in-house PVD and DLC gun coatings and firearms coatings. Use PVD and DLC coatings on your firearms components.

DLC Firearms Coating Costs

DLC coat handguns, revolvers, and pistols for as low as $1 per component with one of our right-sized PVD/DLC firearm coating machines.

Over the past few years, PVD and DLC gun coatings have become a big selling point for firearms. These coatings add a durable, attractive look and performance when you coat firearm components. They’re often used to coat triggers, sights, frames, muzzles, barrels, and metal framings.

Apply these hard DLC firearms coatings through physical or plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PE-CVD). PE-CVD is often used to deposit diamond-like carbon firearm coatings. During these gun coating processes, molecules of various materials are vaporized and returned to a solid in a thin layer on the surface of the firearm components being coated – enhancing their look and durability.

Your per-part firearm coating costs using a VaporTech® PVD/DLC coating machine from Vapor Technologies, Inc., are as low as $1 for a coating a typical part. Contact us for more information about how we can meet your exact needs.


Using PVD Machines For DLC Firearms Coatings

Our PVD machines create a distinctive DLC firearms coating for a durable finish in metallic colors. These DLC coatings are particularly beneficial in coating firearms as they increase durability, reduce sliding friction, are only microns thick, and are effective on various materials.

Gun Diamond-Like Carbon Coatings

Our coating machines apply DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating to firearms. DLC firearms coatings enhance performance and come in distinctive shades of gray to “almost-black.” You may be interested in DLC coating firearms or want to learn more about diamond-like carbon firearm coating as a whole.

Diamond-Like Coating Firearms for Durability

Gun DLC coating durability and longevity contribute to the rifle, pistol, or handgun aesthetic, value, and durability. These properties explain the coatings’ growing popularity within the firearms manufacturing industry and its respective customers. Applying this thin layer of PVD or DLC coatings to gun components adds hardness to the entire surface, protecting parts from scratches and other forms of wear.

Low-Friction Sliding with DLC Pistol Coatings

As firearms have precision-machined parts, it is vital to have all sliding mechanisms functioning correctly and minimize resistance and friction. Using DLC gun coating may lead to less need for lubricants and, therefore, less dirt and dust build-up on pistols.

DLC Coat Triggers, Sights, Frames, Muzzles, Barrels, and Metal Framings

Another significant benefit of diamond-like carbon coating guns is the coating’s ability to adhere to a wide variety of materials and shapes. Using the PE-CVD process in a VaporTech® system ensures the DLC coating on your guns is applied evenly across components, providing durability and a smooth finish to parts, including:

  • Triggers
  • Sights
  • Frames
  • Muzzles
  • Barrels
  • Metal framings
