Abstract:

One coat ammunition enamels covered by Specification TT-E-516, Enamel, Lustreless, Quick Drying, Styrenated Alkyd Type were reformulated with white low tint strength inhibitive type pigmentations. The enamels were subject to salt spray tests and exterior exposure at temperate and tropical zone sites. The data shows several of the experimental enamels will provide significantly improved corrosion resistance over the standard enamels.
