Chimera Finishings is part of Chimera Motorcycles. Whilst designing and building high quality motorcycles we needed to find a finish that would meet our requirements on a number of parts. This is where we discovered Cerakote.
We now offer Cerakote services for a number of applications from exhausts to golf clubs, from suspension to 3D prints.
Read on below to find out more about the application process, Cerakote and an example price list
Please get in contact with us to discuss how we can assist in your project what ever it is!
WHAT IS CERAKOTE
Cerakote is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metals, plastics, and polymers. Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including thermal insulation, lubrication, abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. There are a number of different series that Cerakote offer which suit different application, the two main ones are: H Series - Has over 120 Colours to choose from. Super high corrosion and chemical resistance. Excellent for many applications from automotive to Sports, to 3D printed parts This product is oven cured. C Series - Can withstand temperatures of up to 1800 F. Great for engine and exhaust components. There are plenty of colour choices but more limited than H Series. This product is air cured. We can talk through your application and what best meets your needs.
