Cerakote is a ceramic-based coating which is available in various colors.  It is one of the simplest finishing options available if you are looking for to custom color your firearm.  Unlike certain other finish options, a Cerakote coating will not attract abrasion-causing dust particles and offers superior lubricity to treated parts.

Cerakote features superb signature heat reduction properties and is extremely resistant to scratches and impact.  That finish can be applied to materials of all types, including plastics, metals, and composite surfaces.  Cerakote requires little maintenance and will last you for years before needing a tune-up.  A firearm treated with Cerakote is virtually impervious to the corrosive effects of salt spray and water.  Cerakote can withstand heat temperatures of more than 1000 degrees.
