Thumbs up Melonite vs Chrome barrels

I was doing some research on the difference between chrome lined barrels and Melonite. If you want to read something interesting check out the friction coefficient between the two. In the following attachment they show that the friction difference is tremendous with Melonite winning by a mile. It is very much a technical read but after reading posts by the people in this forum I feel that everyone will understand it.

Wear Resistant Coating, QPQ, Melonite, California

and one just explaining Melonite
Melonite Processing

Have a wonderful Day

p.s. While I am recovering from my 6th surgery in 2 years I have a lot of time!!!!

I think with a lot of the internet hype, most will never believe that there is anything else better than crome lined. BTW good article!

Thanks for the post and good luck with your recovery. I had surgery on my broken left fibula on Nov. 29 and am now in physical therapy. I have had 6 surgeries over the past 7 years. Hang in there!
