Voodoo Innovations VDI Threaded Melonite Nitride with PVD aka Lifecoat Barrel Available for Glock 17 or 19
The VooVoo Innovations Glock 17 or 19 9mm Match Grade Barrels are designed as an improved drop-in fit barrel for the Glock 17 and 19 (choose size below). The VDI Barrel is machined to tighter fitment tolerances to increase accuracy potential without the need of gunsmith fitting. The barrel features a SAAMI spec 9mm Match chambering, Match Grade Rifling to allow the use of any 9mm projectile (not just jacketed bullets), threaded ½ x 28 TPI for use with 9mm suppressors and compensators, machined from 416R stainless steel, and Finished in Voodoo Innovations LifeCoat process. Includes VDI Thread Protector.

What is Lifecoat?
MELONITE NITRIDE (ADAMS ARMS PROPRIETARY "LIFECOAT" FALLS UNDER THIS CATEGORY BUT IS MORE ADVANCED MULTI-STEP PROCESS USING PVD INSTEAD OF LIQUID NITRIDE)
This finishing process provides a surface hardening condition that protects against corrosion and wear better than hard chrome or nickel plating. While liquid nitriding is a surface modification technology, Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating involves the deposition of thin (2-10 microns; 0.0001”–0.0004”) proprietary films (i.e. TiN, CrN, Ti(C,N)) on the surface of components.
VooDoo Innovations (VDI) has trademarked the term LifeCoat. The term is used to describe a multitude of coating processes that best fit the application of the specific AR15 part. Since each part serves a different purpose, it has different applicable needs for surface protection, lubricity, hardness and color. Some coatings are “Line of Sight” coatings and can only coat outside dimensions of a part. While other coatings are baths and therefore have the ability to coat blind holes as well as other internal cavities. All coating processes have an intended purpose. Some coating processes offer superior lubricity, but may not be hard enough to hold up over long periods of time on point-to-point contact surfaces. VDI has taken their years of experience in the world of Mechanics, Engineering and Firearms’ Technology to apply these processes to their best intended application. Having the ability to offer specific materials, machining techniques, coatings and apply them to the purpose of the part is what allows them to offer Life-Time Warranties on the parts produced. Many variables come into play when applying various coatings; from heat and surface preparation to friction on mating contact points.
