TAC Coatings UK Ltd is a veteran owned and operated business that was established in 2012. Born from an idea that emerged from combat operations where certain equipment such as; weapons and communication antennas – stood out, not just during the day but at night under night vision devices. In trying to address the problem, whilst serving at the time, the owners were unable to find a company in the UK that could provide a solution. After researching all the available products on the market Cerakote stood out as the leading option and the owners travelled out to White City, Oregon, USA, home of Cerakote at NIC Industries, to be the first UK company to complete the Certified Applicators course. Armed with the knowledge and skills the owners quickly set about building a bespoke coating facility back in the UK.
Due to the versatility of Cerakote, TAC Coatings were able to branch out into other industries outside of its Military and Law Enforcement customer base. TAC Coatings now has a leading market share within the shooting sports and hunting market, through a network of firearm dealers and from returning individual customers. TAC Coatings also provide the full suite of Cerakote High Temperature Ceramic Coatings and now supplies a number of exhaust and precision component manufacturers with coating services.
With its close alignment with the firearm industry and combined experience of 47 years within the military. TAC Coatings is developing its portfolio by supporting MOD funded trials with technical, training and legislative consultancy services. In addition, full firearm design and delivery projects are now part of the TAC Coatings arsenal.
“Quality of service second to none. Creative with excellent realistic advice. You will not be disappointed with the skill and experience here.”
“Excellent service, coating work is spot on and the turn around time is very good as well . Highly recommended company”
“This Cerekote effect has completely changed this rifle, top quality work and attention to detail.
“Having shortened the fore-end wood on my AIA No4 it exposed the variegated original finish of the barrel. The action and fittings were also looking tired and worn. An old pattern bolt action, iron sighted rifle has any number of fixtures and fittings and Tactical Coatings did an excellent job of disassembly. The Graphite Black coating they recommended has resulted in an ‘as new’ finish. I am very impressed with the quality of their Cerakote work. They completed the project ahead of schedule and to a very high standard. I would recommend them to anyone looking to have their rifle refinished.”
