FINISHES

Plain - "LOW-FLEC" Finish

Our standard finish is designed to be brite, but not reflective. A special proprietary process is used which breaks up the surface into tens of thousands of individual polished pockets. When hit with a brite light, the surface diffuses the light instead reflecting it. 

Black - "PVD" Finish

PVD is a form of Chemical Vapor Deposition. This is an ultra thin film coating with a chemical and metallurgical bond that results from the reaction between various gaseous phases and the heated surface of a substrate. The final product is a hard, wear-resistant coating with an extremely strong bond to the substrate (stainless steel).
 
PVD is currently being applied on weapons systems used by the U.S. Military in Army Green, Earth Brown, and Desert Sand
