Originally, a Duralar subsidiary developed ArmorLube™ for the US ARMY to increase the capability and reliability of soldier weapon systems. ArmorLube is a unique and advanced, ultra-hard coating that also provides permanent dry lubrication. It can serve a range of applications to enhance the capabilities and extend the longevity of products, but it is particularly well suited to a broad spectrum of uses in the firearms industry. ArmorLube can improve the performance of hammers, trigger assemblies, bolts, bolt carriers, slides, levers, magazines and numerous other parts in handguns, shotguns and rifles, including semiautomatic and automatic models.
Duralar’s ArmorLube can improve the performance of many types of parts and assemblies that involve the repeated sliding of metal against metal. The coating is created from a proprietary carbon-based formula, with the carbon component providing a natural graphitic lubricity and an extremely low coefficient of friction — less than 0.1. This added lubricity significantly increases the parts’ ability to move smoothly and easily with less force.
