Duracoat is a brand of isocyanate-catalyzed polyurethane. I've worked with these materials for 20 years as a finisher.
The name from Sherwin Williams is Polane, ICA from Italy supplies several different varieties for indoor and outdoor use. Valspar and M.L. Campbell also market similar material under several brand names.

Most of these are not made for (or even available to) the average consumer. Improper mixing can cause spontaneous combustion in some cases and it is using an isotope of cyanide, not healthy under any circumstances.
Other than knowing the ratios of catalyst and reducers specific to the brand, it's just like spraying paint on any car or piece of furniture. The mechanics of fluid viscosity and atomization are helpful but not needed, same with the chemical reactions involved unless you have specific temperatures involved.

There are also different primers for ferrous or non-ferrous metals to ensure adhesion which makes some difference in preparation techniques.

I haven't done any, but I plan on picking some up when I have a little extra cash. I live less than a mile from the place that sells it (Lauer Custom Weaponry)

Yeah, I've done a few. You have to use a steady hand and a airbrush kit.
