Default Sig Scorpion Cerakoat

I have had my Sig Scorpion for about a year now. I have noticed that there is some flaking of the Cerakote along the slide. Is this normal, for Cerakote to wear that easily and quickly.

Sig uses Cerakote on their guns? I would hope not....
I don't see what the problem is. Everybody is being nice, and getting along, and I, for one, am learning stuff. So, if you don't like the discussion, don't look at the thread. Or, simply cut to the chase, and close it.
Is there an age limit for a thread, after which we kill it?

Flaking is usually due to improper prep before applying the coating. Even if there is wear, it should not flake. Sometimes it can even come down to which media is used to blast it and if it's clean. Sand and glass beads have shown problems and aluminum oxide seems to be doing better. It all comes down to how well the surface was prepped, if it was sprayed cold and baked correctly.
