Surface Pre-Treatment - Zinc & Manganese Phosphating
Phosphating is a conversion coating, applied by Surface Technology (Australia) via immersion at temperature. The chemical reaction which takes place allows the formation of a layer of insoluble, crystalline phosphates to form on the surface of the component.
Zinc & Manganese Phosphate - The Benefits
Phosphating can be carried out on a component, in conjunction with oiling, as a coating in it's own right. This will increase it's resistance to corrosion, and in the case of Manganese Phosphate, increase it's resilience against adhesive wear.
Phosphating - Key Properties
Properties which zinc and manganese phosphating imparts upon the component it is applied to include;
Typical uses for phosphating are subsea oil & gas industry dry film lubricants; fasteners; thrust washers; gears and bearings.
