Lone Wolf Distributors well known for their Aftermarket Glock support has announced the expansion of their Performance PVD coatings for firearm components.
Lone Wolf Distributors states “If you are looking for a high performance coating for your slide or barrel, look no further than one of our beautiful PVD selections.
Physical Vapor Deposition is a process often used to provide hardness and abrasion resistance to machine parts and cutting tools to achieve maximum efficiency.
Due to the micronized nature of PVD coatings, there is no perceivable build up (or thickness added) to the medium it’s being applied to.
This makes PVD coatings perfect for application to moving components such as firearm slides and barrels.
The average micro hardness of PVD coatings go well over 80 on the Rockwell hardness scale, but does not effect the characteristics of the steel beneath.
This provides excellent abrasion resistance and a lowered coefficient of friction, which means less resistance and heat buildup.
Apply these characteristics to the already stellar performance of the 416R stainless steel that’s used in our Lone Wolf slides and barrels, and now you have the ultimate combination of high performance and high-speed looks!
We recommend you keep the coated parts oiled to prevent corrosion.”
