Prokaps - ProCast Coating Hi Tech H- Series ProCast Firearm Coating
High-Strength Technological Coating
The unique formulation used for ProCast firearm coatings enhances a number of physical performance properties including: abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. Each of these properties is rigorously tested to guarantee that ProCast products remain at the forefront of the firearm coatings market. For this study, the performance properties of ProCast Graphite Black were compared to the products of two firearm coatings competitors, denoted as C1 and C2. Each coating was evaluated on nine important aspects including
performance and cost. These results are summarized in table 1, shown below, and a more extensive description of the results and procedures is given in the following paragraphs.
Theoretical coverage if applied according to manufacturers’ specifications of 0.5 mil.
Taber Abrasion Testing1
1 Taber abrasion testing performed by Anachem Laboratories, Inc., El Segundo, CA.
Taber abrasion testing was performed to compare the wear resistance of ProCast Graphite Black to
products C1 and C2. This testing was performed in accordance with ASTM Standard D4060 by an
independent testing facility.
Each coating was applied to a set of steel panels according to the manufacturers’ instructions. A CS-17 taber abrasion wheel with a 1000 g weight was used for the abrasion testing. The abrasion wheel was rotated at a constant speed and the coating loss for each product was calculated. These results were used to determine the wear cycles per mil, which is an indicator of the rate of coating thickness loss. ProCast required 5212 cycles to remove a mil of coating whereas the wear cycles per mil for C1 and C2 were 597 and 418, respectively. These results are illustrated in figure 1. This study shows that ProCast is up to 12 times more wear resistant than competitive coatings.
