At Hero Barbell Co., we believe in delivering the best quality barbells to our customers. And that's why we've decided to use Cerakote as our coating of choice. In this document, we'll take a closer look at what Cerakote is, how it's made, and why it makes for a great coating solution for barbells.
What is Cerakote?
Cerakote is a ceramic-based, thin-film coating that is known for its durability and resistance to wear and tear. This type of coating is made by mixing ceramic particles with a polymer resin, which is then cured to form a solid, durable surface. The result is a coating that is highly resistant to abrasion, corrosion, and impact.
One of the key characteristics of Cerakote is its ability to retain its color and texture over time. Unlike other coatings that may fade or peel, Cerakote is designed to stay vibrant and intact, even after extended use. This means that your barbell will look just as good years down the line as it did when you first bought it.
Benefits of Cerakote for Barbells
When it comes to barbells, there are a number of benefits that come with using Cerakote as a coating solution. First and foremost, Cerakote provides excellent protection against rust and corrosion. This is especially important for barbells that are used in gym environments, where moisture and humidity levels can be high.
Another advantage of Cerakote is its increased durability and longevity. This type of coating is designed to withstand the wear and tear of daily use, which means your barbell will last longer and perform better over time. This also makes Cerakote a cost-effective choice, as you won't need to replace your barbell as often.
In addition to its protective qualities, Cerakote also adds a touch of aesthetic appeal to barbells. With a range of colors and finishes to choose from, you can choose a coating that matches your personal style and enhances the look of your barbell.
Improved grip and texture is another benefit of Cerakote. This type of coating provides a comfortable, non-slip surface that is ideal for heavy lifting and other high-intensity workouts.
Finally, Cerakote is resistant to impact and wear, which means your barbell will be able to handle even the toughest workouts with ease. Whether you're doing squats, deadlifts, or any other heavy lifting exercises, you can trust that your barbell will be able to handle the pressure.
How Cerakote is Applied to Barbells
At Hero Barbell Co., we take great care when applying Cerakote to our barbells. The process begins with thoroughly preparing the barbell to ensure a smooth, even surface. This includes cleaning, sanding, and polishing the barbell to remove any imperfections.
Once the barbell is ready, we apply a thin layer of Cerakote using a specialized spray system. This system allows us to precisely control the amount of coating we apply, ensuring that each barbell receives the optimal amount of protection.
After the Cerakote has been applied, we subject each barbell to a series of quality control measures to ensure that the coating has been applied evenly and to the right thickness. This includes checking for any cracks, bubbles, or other imperfections that could impact the performance of the barbell.
We have been producing our barbells with Cerakote for the last three years and our customers have been extremely satisfied with the performance and durability of our Cerakote-coated barbells.
We have a number of commercial gyms that using our Cereakote barbells and despite heavy usage and exposure to various elements, the barbells have held up extremely well and still look and perform great.
At Hero Barbell Co., we have seen the benefits of Cerakote firsthand through the positive experiences of our customers. If you are in the market for a new barbell or looking to upgrade your existing equipment, consider choosing Cerakote for its superior performance and durability.
