Melonite treatment for bumpers

Why has no company offered melonite treatment for their bumpers?
It is a durable finish.

most companies that offer melonite, charge by the pound. so you can plate as little or much as you want.

Nickel-Boron would be cool too. Slicker than greased owl shit.

I wonder if nickel-Boron would be easier to clean because of how slick it is.

For sure. I bet you could wash bugs off with a garden hose. I have a spikes NiB BCG and it's tits. A quick wipe down and it's clean.

Nickel Boron is rated at 70c where the melonite is rated at 65c (rockwell scale).

I wonder what the cost/ longevity difference is?
Is the nickel boron a coating or a actual type of metal?
If it's a coating does it add to the thickness (Like chrome lining) or is it more like a stain that seeps into the metal to change it (Like melonite)?

Nib isn't cheap. It is a coating, but a coating made of metal. It does add thickness, but not much. It doesn't flake off like chrome, it adheres to the metal very well. I can run my rifle with no lube for thousands of rounds with no ill effects to the coating, but I usually have a couple drops of frog lube on it.
