Stain resistance

Test: ASTM D1308
Test Summary: ASTM D1308 measures the effect of common chemicals on clear and pigmented finishes, resulting in any objectionable alteration to the surface. It describes three test methods: Covered Spot test, Open Spot test and Immersion test. This test was performed on Cerakote MC-160 and H-300 in accordance to the Open Spot test. Test data reported for competitive finishes was provided by their respective manufacturer. A small portion of various reagents were placed on a horizontal panel. After one hour, the spot was wiped clean and examined. The level of effect was then detailed.
