Maraging steel panels were coated with finishes of paint per MIL-P-23377, vacuum-deposited aluminum, vacuum-deposited cadmium, flame-sprayed aluminum, and electroless nickel, and were exposed to 1200 hours of salt spray and humidity testing. In addition, tests were conducted to determine reaction effects between the paint coating and the HEN-12 propellant. The vacuum cadmium and paint coatings performed best in protecting the maraging steel panels. The reaction effects between the paint coating and HEN-12 propellant were considered negligible.
