Wet Lubricants?

Because of the self-lubricating properties of our diamond-like carbon coating, wet lubricants used in firearms are going the way of the dodo. Enhanced hardness and miniscule friction coefficients lead to wear resistance that can’t be matched by liquid lubrication. It’s no wonder customers are demanding these benefits and manufacturers are turning to UPT. After all, wet lubricants are dinosaurs.
