Sample Identification

The samples were identified as five sets of two specimens. The six test samples were identified as: Steel, Nye-Kote™, Nye-Tef™, Nye-Carb™, Kanigen®, Hard Chrome plated.

Test Method:

The samples were allowed to condition at standard laboratory conditions of 72 +/- 4 F and 50 +/- 5% relative humidity for at least 40 hours prior to testing. Testing was done according to ASTM 4060
