Armscor Global Defense Inc., a leading manufacturer of firearms, ammunition and defense products, teamed up with coating technology company ArmorLube to optimize the former’s manufacturing capabilities.
Headquartered in Arizona, ArmorLube has pioneered a line of next-generation ultrahard coatings designed to increase the performance and extend the longevity of products across many industries.
The company has a proprietary “hollow cathode” technology that provides an advanced, ultra-hard dry coating which does away with the oils and greases utilized in traditional firearms coating processes that could attract dust or dirt, resulting in carbon fouling or jamming.
“One of the advantages of our particular coating when it comes to firearms or other hard coatings is its ability to survive humid and salty weather areas that make firearms much more susceptible to corrosion,” said ArmorLube chief executive Andrew Tudhope.
ArmorLube utilizes a vacuum process known as plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition that produces a diamond-like carbon firearm coating that provides a distinct advantage as it increases the firearm’s performance, reliability and durability even in the most challenging conditions.
Headquartered in Parang, Marikina City, AGDI has over 1,200 employees and is one of the biggest exporters of firearms and ammunition in the world.
