KG Gun Kote

KG’s 2400 Series Gun Kote is a hard, abrasion resistant coating which meets and exceeds all military and aerospace specifications for protective coatings. KG Gun Kote is an excellent option as a solid color finish for your product, but it also is an ideal base coating for the ImageLockTM process.

KG Gun Kote 2400 Series is a thin hard coating that will give excellent protection from abrasion.  It is not easily worn off like bluing, phosphate or chemically blackened surface treatments, which can leave metal surfaces, bare and unprotected from the elements. Gun Kote does not attract dirt or dust, has excellent impact resistance and can be formulated to meet specific customer’s needs.

Gun Kote is formulated for durability using a proprietary Melamine or Phenolic resin system and when Gun Kote is properly applied it will provide:

  1. Outstanding corrosion protection. Tests performed for Armscor by the South African Navel Logistics Dept. showed Gun Kote withstanding an equivalent of a 7 year exposure. (Tests were performed on Aluminum in a salt spray chamber with 50/50 on/off time at 35 degrees C.)
  2. Resistant to chemicals, oils and solvents common to Automotive, Aircraft, Motorcycles and Marine Industries.
  3. Helps to cool parts by dissipating heat. Gun Kote will withstand temperatures over 500 degrees F and as low as -120 degrees F.

Gun Kote can be applied to all ferrous and non-ferrous metals, over all types of plating and some plastics.

KG’s New 1200 Series One Part Air Cured coating is a single component, water based, modified proprietary polyurethane resin system.  The 1200 Series is a fast curing system, formulated to compete and replace two part water based coatings being marketed to various industries.

The 1200 has excellent adhesion, hardness, and flexibility. It is especially good for solvent sensitive substrates and for low VOC applications where a barrier coating is required.  The 1200 bonds extremely well to an array of substrates, metal, plastic and rubber but most impressive is substrates may not have to be profiled to assure adhesion.
