Black Nitron Finish

What is the black nitron finish? Is it better than any other finish? I am probably showing my ignorance, but I have never heard of it. Thanks in advance for any info.

Nitron Finish

It is SIG's "Completely non-reflective, Wear resistant finish that provides superior corrosion protection"
Just SIG's gimmick for finish.

USP finish

HK actually had some fancy name for their finish as well. It still rusts if not cleaned. I can not speak for the SIG, but after sliding down a 200' slope of snow with an elk carcass pulling me, the HK was smothered in snow. I neglected (I know, bad clint!!) cleaning my weapon and when I got around to it, I was busy for most of the day removing rust.
