Hello folks, this is Ryan from IonBond, and yes this is the proper spelling of the company name.Just wnated all you guy's to know that I appreciate the phone calls and interests, we are currently working on our web site for the guns, so give us a little more time with that. I have guns coming in left and right, words getting out and I slammed. Everyone seems to be very pleased with the coating.But the reason I am writing is to give some technical info on the finish so yall ain't left in the dark. The coating most of people are wanting is the DLC (Diamond Like Coating). This is our PVD coating that is the One tough mother of a coating. Hardness is 70-90 rockwell and thickness is 3 to 6 microns. Not quite a half a thousandth at its thickest. Pretty much wont interfere with your tolerances. This coating is available for steels and hard anodized aluminum. Coating sucks up lubrication like a sponge, then releases it as it is needed. When coated parts come out of the Machine they are a dark charcoal color and after I oil them they are black. We also have a Zirconuim coating in two colors now. Flat Dark Earth and Desert Tan. The F.D.E. is closer to an olive drab tone. This coating is 60 to 70 rockwell hardness and 2 to 3 microns thick. So now you can have your two tones. This coating is currently only available for steels, we are in process or developing it for aluminum. I just finished a revolver in Desert and Black and it looks sweet. Will have pics shortly.
You can prep your guns to your desired finish or I can. If you just want to send your whole gun in and let me take care of it, no problem, I am a gunsmith, so your in good hands. We offer 3 types of finish on polish; matte, satin or a gloss polish(mainly slide flats). This is included in the price unless you want the whole gun gloss and that is $40.00 extra for polishing time.
well is you have any more questions please feel free to contact me, 336-665-0005 ext 1340
IF you don't get me leave a message and I'll call you back as soon as possible.
Thanks everyone and have a good one.
