Zinc phosphating is an important application that works as a binding agent for lubricants, oils, and waxes. Applied to metal substrates, a layer of zinc phosphate helps the components to hold these top-layer coatings better, particularly in extreme or hostile working environments. This produces improved protection against corrosion and greater lubricity for low-friction surfaces.
As experienced zinc phosphating specialists, we have much to offer our customers across the UK. This is what you can expect from us…
There are two main ways of applying zinc phosphate to your components – brushing and immersion. At Karas Plating, we will provide you with professional advice as to which of these techniques are most appropriate. Both cause a chemical reaction with the substrate, forming a deposit of zinc phosphate that crystallises on the metal surface.
You do not need to use a lot of zinc phosphate to get an effective layer on your component parts. With our decades of experience in the industry, we can apply a thin, even, and uniform layer on even the most complicated of parts. Zinc phosphate is also extremely lightweight, so it will not impact on the efficacy of your components.
Zinc phosphate is primarily applied as a primer for other material coatings, acting as a binding agent. As well as various lubricants, oils, and waxes, that are usually applied directly by our clients, zinc phosphate is an effective primer for painting purposes. The phosphate layer provides extra adhesion for many types of paint, resulting in a durable final product.
