They are being used for making Kita Pantams and also ready to supply to makers who are interested in good quality and hassle free shells.

Nitrating Process

Unlike many other makers, we use plasma Nitrating process which is more expensive than gas nitrating and creates much more uniform layer of Nitrate on the metal surface so that the surface properties stay the same across the shells. There is also a post oxidation process following to the nitrating, giving the surface the mat black color and making it more corrosion resistance.
