We are now offering a public Cerakote® service!

Since 2020, our team of Austin Texas-based certified applicators have sprayed thousands of miscellaneous parts and hundreds of mechanical keyboards!

As keyboard enthusiasts ourselves, we know exactly what goes into creating a killer keyboard finish. We're not your typical coating shop – we're laser-focused on mechanical keyboards. We get it - because we're just as particular about our keyboards as you are.

Timeline

The lead time is currently 2-5 business days.

How do I send in parts?

  1. Once your order is complete, we will promptly contact you via email to facilitate the creation of a shipping label for your part(s). If you've chosen to include insurance, the corresponding charges will be integrated into the shipping cost invoice sent to you.

  2. It's important to ensure that you only dispatch the parts that require coating and kindly remove any keyboard feet or gaskets before sending them.

  3. If the parts you're shipping have the capability to be securely assembled, we recommend doing so to facilitate their transit.

  4. To safeguard your parts during transit, we suggest packing them in either a foam carrying case or ensuring each piece is meticulously bubble-wrapped individually.

Alternatively, you're welcome to bring in parts yourself directly to our storefront in Austin, Texas. Reach out to support to schedule this.


What Does the Coating Service Encompass?

  1. Surface Preparation: Our process commences by meticulously blasting the keyboard down to bare metal. This not only removes any existing coating but also establishes the ideal surface for ensuring a secure CERAKOTE® adhesion.

  2. Universal Blasting: Even if your part is already sandblasted or is devoid of any existing coating, we apply a specific grit size as recommended by CERAKOTE® to ensure uniformity in the preparation process.

  3. Cleaning and Degreasing: Following the initial blasting, the parts are submerged in an acetone tank. This soak serves the dual purpose of cleaning and degreasing the parts, preparing them for the coating application. Subsequently, the parts are carefully racked in our industrial oven for a full 30-minute cycle to bring any residual oils to the surface that may have soaked into the metal while being machined.

  4. Repeat Process (If Necessary): If required, we repeat the degreasing and baking process until no traces of oils are detected, ensuring a pristine surface for the coating.

  5. Fixturing: Your part is then fixtured in preparation for the application of your chosen coating and any optional effects you may have selected.

  6. Coating Application: We expertly apply the selected coating and any additional effects you've chosen to achieve the desired finish and protection for your part.

  7. Quality Inspection: Once the coating process is complete, we conduct a thorough quality check to identify and rectify any flaws or imperfections, ensuring that your part meets our high standards of quality.

  8. Packaging: After passing our rigorous quality inspection, your part(s) are carefully packed, ready to be shipped, and delivered to you, ensuring that they arrive in perfect condition.

We take great care and attention to detail at each step of this process to provide you with the best possible results for your coated parts.
