What is Phosphate Plated?
Phosphate coatings are a crystalline conversion coating for steel and other metals that is formed on a ferrous metal substrate. The process is to immerse the steel parts in a phosphate solution to obtain a layer of water-insoluble phosphate film on the metal surface.
Benefits for Phosphate plated
(1)Phosphate coatings provide superior uniform bonding capabilities for organic coatings like paints, lacquers, or a CARC military topcoat. When applied to steel or iron, it provides a non-reflective finish that can be dyed to your specification. It also provides corrosion protection to the metal.
(2)Phosphate coating provides strong adhesion and corrosion protection and also improves the friction properties of sliding components.
(3)Some of the threaded parts are treated with phosphate coatings, which improves their anti-galling and rust inhibiting characteristics.
