Abstract : Following a survey of military specifications, several coatings were tested for the Signal, Smoke and Illumination, Submarine, Ex 85, Mod O, which is made of magnesium. The best materials were subjected to salt spray tests. Results show alkaline resistant coatings of 2.0 to 4.0 mils, such as epoxies, polyurethanes and vinyls, are satisfactory over suitable pretreatments. (Author)
