                Cerakote Quality Standards and Expectations: Cerakote is a ceramic coating, and has a very unique texture (like a ceramic). We do all the Cerakote in house, and as much as we would love for every board to be perfect, no kit can be 100% flawless due to coating process.

                There may be small grains under the surface of the cerakote and the internal surfaces may be more coarse than external surfaces.
