Default Alternative to anodizing?

Hi All
I have a custom sir stripper that has been bonded together with stainless components as well as ally so it cant be anodized, also looking to change the colour of a few more parts of the rifle.
does anyone know any good alternatives? i have looked at just getting them painted but would rather a better finish.

Alex

Cerakote .

The H series coatings (oven cured) are incredibly hard. They are thermally cured, so depending on exactly what was used to bond your mod may not be suitable.
The C series don't require thermal curing, and aren't as indestructable as the H-series, but still much tougher than any paint/anodizing/powdercoat.

Normal prep requires immersion in a degreaser, so once again the adhesive used may be an issue. It might be best to disassemble, get it H-series coated and rebond it.

Cerakote is the way, a load of colour options. I'm not sure who does it on here, but RichardH on the BBS (if you can get hold of him) may be able to help.

Cheers Guys! apparently the stainless is bonded with Loctite but I have tried soaking it in acetone, heat gun and pulling it in lathe chucks but it wont budge so im sure it will hold. Going to go with the second option for the cerakote and they do the colour im after! all sorted
