Bonding has to do with the prep, not the name on the bottle.
The main difference between Cerekote and DuraCoat are the way they cure and the materials they consist of.
Saying one is better than the other is like saying a Glock is better than a 1911.
One cures via the air and one cures via an oven - both are extremely durable if prepped and cured properly. Cerekote's advantage is if you have ovens big enough, once they bake, they are done. DuraCoat's advantage is the finish has some elastic properties, unlike a ceramic based finish, which basically cracks if it "bends" even a little. Its all preference based.
The "this one is better" argument only exists because of people who like to latch onto one product and defend is mercilessly.
Obviously I use DuraCoat - and have for years - but I won't put down CereKote or GunKote - DuraCoat is just my preference. But they ALL suck if you don't prep correctly.
