Abstract:

The effect of etching andor chromating brass and gilding metal on the coefficient of friction in contact with glass-filled nylon was determined. The effect of chemically etching the nylon substrate was also ascertained. It was found that the high frictional forces believed required for successful firing of gilding metal jacketed 17 caliber bullets and glass-filled nylon sabots could be attained by surface modifications.
