  • Tight Tolerances and Coverage Within
  • Tubulars
  • Ease of Cleaning


Eclipse-TPD® (Tactical Performance Defense) is the most advanced low reflectance coating available today for ammunition components. Eclipse-TPD® provides a smoke-black, matte appearance that is ideal for use where low light reflectivity is a tactical requirement. There is no other finish today that couples the lubricity and corrosion performance benefits with the low reflectance tactical advantage of Eclipse-TPD®.


  • Smoke Black Finish
  • Molecular Enhanced Duplex Technology
  • Dry Film Lubricity
  • Low Reflectance Coating for Tactical Applications



Black-TPD® couples the unmatched deposit durability, reloading capacity and ductility of APT’s Ducta-bright 7a® nickel with a proprietary Black-TPD® alloy. The result is a duplex coating system with unsurpassed corrosion resistance, dry film lubricity with a premium, liquid-black appearance.

  • Liquid Black Finish
  • Dry Film Lubricity
  • Enhanced corrosion resistance





Ducta-Bright 7a®


Ducta-bright 7a® was developed in response to this in a year-long R&D project at APT. The goal was to create a ductile and bright nickel deposit that would be optimized for the most aggressive ammunition applications. Of the 40 process variants that were developed and tested, group A within Lot 7 produced the best combination giving the process its signature name.

The Ducta-bright 7a® Nickel process provides a lustrous nickel deposit that can withstand even the most aggressive +P loading and will afford virtually as many reloads as a raw brass casing.

  • Will Not Crack or Flake During Loading or Reloading
  • Enhanced Feeding
  • Improved Corrosion Protection
  • No Tarnishing of Brass
