Euclid Refinishing offers Iron Phosphate Coating

Iron phosphate coating is a popular surface treatment method that is commonly used in a variety of industries. This coating is widely used in the manufacturing of automotive parts, and appliances.

What is Iron Phosphate Coating?

Iron phosphate coating is a type of conversion coating that is applied to the surface of metals to provide corrosion resistance, improve paint adhesion, and enhance surface hardness. This coating is typically applied to steel, but it can also be applied to other metals such as magnesium, zinc & aluminum.

The iron phosphate coating process involves a chemical reaction between the metal surface and the iron phosphate solution. The solution contains a mixture of iron phosphate and an acid, typically phosphoric acid. When the metal is immersed in the solution, the acid reacts with the metal to form iron phosphate crystals on the surface. These crystals provide a rough surface that promotes adhesion between the metal and any subsequent coatings.

Benefits of Iron Phosphate Coating

There are several benefits to using iron phosphate coating, including:

Corrosion Resistance

Iron phosphate coating provides excellent corrosion resistance to metal surfaces. The coating acts as a barrier between the metal and the environment, preventing rust and other forms of corrosion from forming.

Improved Paint Adhesion

Iron phosphate coating improves the adhesion of paint and other coatings to metal surfaces. The rough surface created by the coating provides an anchor for the paint, allowing it to adhere more effectively.

Environmentally Friendly

Iron phosphate coating is a relatively environmentally friendly process. The chemicals used in the process are generally non-toxic and non-hazardous, making it a safer alternative to other surface treatment methods.

How is Iron Phosphate Coating Applied?

Iron phosphate coating can be applied using a variety of methods, including spray, immersion, and brushing. The method used will depend on the size and shape of the part being coated, as well as the specific requirements of the coating.

The process typically involves the following steps:

Cleaning: The metal part is cleaned to remove any dirt, oil, or other contaminants that may be present on the surface.

Rinse: The part is rinsed with water to remove any remaining cleaning solution.

Iron Phosphate Coating: The part is immersed in an iron phosphate solution for a predetermined amount of time.
