The following coatings are going to be available
Mil Spec QQ-N-290 Nickel Plating - corrosion resistance, surface hardness 46-50 RC.
Hard Chrome - bright & shinny silver, surface hardness 65-70 RC.
Bright Gold - 24K gold finish, great corrosion resistance (eg, brass or copper substrate).
Bright Orange Anodization (Type II) - note not HA so we get the bright and shiny stuff unless the group decides otherwise
HA (Type III) - Gun Metal gray
HA (Type III) - Deep Black
Ti-Nitride (TiN) - 14K gold color, low friction, 80+ RC (2500-3000 Vickers).
Ti-Carbo-Nitride (TiCN) - gray/copper color, low friction, 90+ RC (3000-3700 Vickers).
Al-Ti-Nitride (AlTiN) - purple/black color, low friction, 90+ RC, 2nd hardest coating available of the list behind diamond.
"C" aka Diamond (DLC) - lowest surface friction
