Decobond™ PVD and Tribobond™ PACVD coatings for firearms

Sports and military hand guns are exposed to the elements, subject to heavy wear and they need regular lubrication in order to ensure proper function.

Ionbond has developed special coatings to protect the outer surfaces from scratching and abrasive wear. Internal parts that need regular servicing benefit from the use of Tribobond™ DLC (diamond like carbon) coatings.

Decobond™ FDE-STD-595B

The non reflective coating reduces the absorption of heat from the sun and keeps pistols and rifles cool, even in the heat of the desert. It resists the abrasion of sand and dirt, the attack of chemicals and fungus and reduces the attraction of dirt.

Decobond™ FDE-STD-595B can be applied to a variety of materials: carbon steel, stainless steel, anodized aluminum and titanium.

  • Low reflection surface
  • High wear resistance
  • Compliant to military standards

Tribobond™ 40 Series DLC

The low friction properties of the thin coating applied to steel and titanium components ensure a perfect functioning. Coated parts slide smoother on the counter surface. Low lubricated or dry components avoid the attraction of dirt and dust and reduce the need for frequent servicing.

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Reduced need for lubrication and reduced carbon fouling
  • High wear resistance
