Quench Polish Quench (QPQ) is a specialized type of nitrocarburizing case hardening that increases corrosion resistance. It is sometimes known by the brand name of Tufftride, Tenifer or Melonite. QPQ is a huge improvement over Chrome Lined barrels. Unlike chrome lining, where the chrome is built up on the surface, QPQ converts the surface without the risk of dimensional build up. The technique is used when two or more of the following properties are required in a work piece:

  • wear resistance
  • corrosion resistance
  • lubricity
  • fatigue strength

My 2nd BA barrel from RTB.  BA makes some outstanding barrels at reasonable prices. As expected it is flawless.  Accuracy is excellent. Pencil barrel made for an exceptionally light AR build. I'll be buying more.
