MBI Coatings, Inc. - Cerakote Coatings

MBI is proud to be considered a Certified Applicator of Cerakote Coatings.  Cerakote (a division of NIC Industries) offers industry-leading ceramic-based thin-film products that are appropriate for almost every industry.

While originally being targeted for the Firearm and Automotive industries, MBI has begun to utilize these coatings in countless industrial applications.  For projects requiring a tight dimensional tolerance, these coatings perform well as a stand-alone option to solve Corrosion, Thermal Barrier, Electrical, or Galling issues.
