As for motorcycle?s magnesium cylinder head cover, 2-coat paint system was necessary because of compatibility of corrosion resistance and weather resistance. We developed 1-coat paint system which is compatible of corrosion resistance and weather resistance, by performing denaturation of epoxy resin to main resin, addition of compound to improve adhesion, and corrosion-resistant pigment. With this paint, one-coat system of paint for cylinder head cover made from magnesium was attained.
