Investigation of Protective Coatings for Ammunition Components - Timing Movements of Mechanical Time Fuze
FRANKFORD ARSENAL PHILADELPHIA PA
Pagination or Media Count:
Inorganic coatings were applied to components of mechanical time fuze M564 for the purpose of improving corrosion resistance. The coatings studies were 5 micrometers or less in thickness and included chromate or anodize coating for aluminum components, electroless nickel, chromate, or immersion tin coating for brass components. Coated components were compared to uncoated in basis metal corrosion when exposed to salt spray or simulated tropical environment.
