Abstract:

Electrostatic powder spray coating, as a moisture barrier was investigated for use on the M205 non-metallic cartridge case. Low density polyethylene was found to be the most suitable resin from the point of view of ease of application and moisture barrier characteristics. The fusion temperature for the resin was 265F for 7 minutes. An electro-conductive primer was applied prior to application of the resin.
