Abstract : The patent relates to a composition suitable for use as a repellant coating for a non-metallic combustible cartridge case and the like against the effects of water in both the liquid and vapor state. The composition represents a synergistic combination of a wax dispersed in a hydrous aluminum silicate gel and having a plasticized nitrocellulose binder. The properties of the above composition relative to abrasion and adhesion may be further enhanced with 2,4-tolylene diisocyanate and aluminum of the flake variety.
