Chemical Resistance of Cerakote H-146

The ability of cerakote H-146 to resist chemical attach was tested by dipping coated panels into a series of solvents to which the coating may be exposed during regular use and extreme conditions. The panels were placed in the solution and allowed to sit for 24 hours. Afterward, the samples were removed, analyzed and assigned a rank depending on the resistance to each specific chemical. the results of this test are shown in the table above.

The performance of the Cerakote gun coating H-146 was classified as excellent for 14 of the solvent tests. This indicates the coating was not affected following 24-hour immersion in the solvents. the coating also showed good resistance to Hci and experienced only slight change in texture after 24-hour immersion.
