In 1941, Army Tank Arsenal production began rolling off Chrysler’s newly constructed production line in Detroit, Michigan. Today, seventy years later, TACOM, (Tank-Automotive Command), the US Army’s largest weapon R&D organization providing US war-fighters with superior battlefield technology, has been using Magni 565 Military coatings for over 10 years as their number one choice for anti-corrosion protection on their metal components.
Magni’s 565 Military coatings, available in tan and green camouflage colors, can be found on the US Army’s self propelled artillery divisions. This 27 ton tank, called the M109A6 Paladin, is today’s most common support weapon of armored infantries.
Magni 565 Military exceeds performance criteria necessary to withstand battle field conditions and satisfy environmental regulations. TACOM, along with other military assemblers: BAS Systems, BAE, AM General, General Dynamics, Plasan, Textron, choose Magni 565 Military for its specific formula and custom camouflage colorings. Magni 565 Military uses our popular Magni 565, which is a combination of an inorganic zinc-rich base coat and an aluminum-rich top coat, plus an integration of friction modifiers which provides a desired, necessary characteristic of repeatable torque tension. Related industrial assemblers, like Bobcat, Brose, Oshkosh Truck, Case, and John Deere, have been using this same chrome-free duplex coating system for its superior corrosion resistance and cost effectiveness for decades as well.
Large metal components, i.e. plates, panels and pipes can be coated via spray application and small parts i.e. externally threaded fasteners, stampings, latches can be coated via dip spin.
The performance benefits of Magni 565 Military are: Thin Film, Consistent Torque and Tension, No Hydrogen Embrittlement, Excellent Bi-Metallic Corrosion Resistance, Lubricity, Heat Resistance, Thermal Stability, Flexible (Elongation), Resistant to Automotive Fuels and Fluids, Paintable, No Hexavalent Chrome and RoHS, WEE, REACH & ELV Compliant.
