I wondered about it being anodizing, but I don’t think you can anodize steel.

I'm out of town for a few days but, as I recall, the coating that I am referring to cannot be cut or peeled off with a blade.
When I try to cut it off it is impossible to penetrate, very like chrome or cadmium plating. I can fairly easily file through it but when I do it does not seem to peel off at all.
When I get home I will try applying some heat to see how it reacts.

could it be a two pack epoxy?

Here's a tough one.
We have some steel racks purchased from Ikea.
These racks have an unusual, very tough aluminium colour coating on them that appears to be a type of plating. It isn't powder coating as it is very thin unlike paint.
I think it would be ideal for wire wheels but cannot seem to find out what it is.
Interestingly I noticed the same coating on some bicycle handlebars today.
Does anyone have any idea what it is?
