This is a follow-up to a post I made some time ago about using Brownell's Aluma-Hyde II paint on a stainless steel Mini.
While I have not re-assembled the Mini (for various reasons) yet, I have some info on the durability of Aluma-Hyde II paint in another connection.
I glass bead blasted some stainless-steel mags , degreased them with acetone, and painted them with A-H II matte black paint.
They were allowed to dry/cure for 2 weeks at about 75 degF.
On re-assembly, the floor plates, which were also painted, were slid into the mags in the usual fashion.
Listen up, now.
The paint on the floorplates, while scratched by the floorplate retaining tabs on the bottom of the mag body was only scratched.
NOT chipped off. NOT scratched through to base metal.
The paint was STILL functionally INTACT, except for a minor, surface-only scratch.
Some of the credit must be due to a near-perfect painting surface. Also a generous amount of time was allowed for curing.
STILL, this is one TOUGH paint.
I would not hesitate to recommend this paint for any similar purpose.

Sounds tough like "Powder Blast" paint.
