Zinc Phosphate provides a crystalline conversion coating that is applied to components manufactured from a Mild Steel substrate.
The Zinc Phosphate coating acts as a
binder for lubricants and rust preventative waxes and oils. Zinc
Phosphates are able to hold these top coat layers of oil etc. in extreme
and hostile environments. When these additional coatings are applied
over the phosphate layer, good levels of corrosion protection and low
friction surfaces are achieved.
Corrosion Resistance - when additional topcoats are applied.
