Phosphate processes are used on steel parts for corrosion resistance or as a foundation for painting. We offer two different phosphating processes: Zinc Phosphate and Manganese Phosphate.

Zinc phosphate is undertaken by immersing iron or steel parts in a zinc coating solution the provides a thin coating to the part. This finish produces a grey colour on parts and is often finished with a dewatering oil coating.

Manganese phosphate provides a thicker coating than zinc phosphate. This process is particularly helpful with parts that require 'sliding' ( such as engine parts). The process is also commonly used on fasteners and bearings.

Zinc Phosphate: 4ft x 2ft x 2ft

Manganese Phosphate: 1.5 ft x 1.5ft x 2.5 ft

Advantages of Phosphating:

  • Provides very good abrasion protection
  • Provides a good painting based (unoiled)
  • Good resistance
