    Default powder coat testing against cleaning solution

    I have powder coated 4 pieces of steel that are about 1"X2" . I used the hybrid powder that is supposed to be chemical resistant.
    I can do a few differant tests tomorrow and share the results, this way we will all know the FACTS not just rumor. let me know what tests you would like and I will see what I can do. with the cleaning stuff I have here.
    thanks HB

    test one
    rusty duck gun action cleaner.
    powder failed..... first soaking wate a 10 count and wipe resulted ion a loss of shine.
    4 repeated soakings then wipe resulted in the coating softening up a bit.

    I guess this is not looking good so far

    I'd really like to see how they stand up to a small (say 5 kiloton) thermonuclear device!

    Kidding aside, Hoppe's, Sweet's 7.62, Windex, Foaming Bore cleaner, CLP, GI "Mouse Milk" are a few that come to mind.

    thermonuclear device test, resulted in charring of the finish and total breakdown of the steel part HAHA

    I told ya hotbarrel. Someone said it worked for them but your tests showed the same results as ours.
