Phosphate Coating from Best Metal Finishing
phosphate coating gives base metal surfaces non-conductive, non-metallic
properties. It also provides an excellent base for other materials such
as paint, plastic or rubber. Phosphate provides corrosion resistance and
is an excellent subsurface for drawing compounds, lubricants and sealants.
Phosphate is generally specified by coating weight, rather than thickness,
and provides an excellent surface for oil absorption. For added corrosion
resistance or additional lubricity, post coatings such as seals, waxes
or lacquer can also be applied to phosphate. Phosphate also reduces break-in
wear on adjacent moving surfaces, improves torque-tension relationships
and provides anti-galling and lubrication during cold forming processes
such as deep-draw extrusions.
Metal Finishing offers two different Zinc Phosphate processes:
Phosphate — For this process, Best Metal Finishing uses smaller
barrels on a 45° axis to handle lighter, more delicate parts. The
slight rotation of our plating barrels assists in the cleaning process
and provides a more even coating while minimizing the damage to parts.
Post coatings such as seals, waxes and lacquer are applied after the plating
Phosphate — For larger or even more delicate parts, we use
a non-rotating basket process. Gentle dipping and swishing motions ensure
complete coverage. Post coatings are also available on our basket line.
