Phosphating

Universal Coating has both rack and barrel phosphating capabilities which allows us to handle small and large parts, and low- to high-volume jobs easily. We offer various types of phosphate coatings including iron and zinc. Phosphates provide both corrosion resistance and lubricity. Iron phosphates serve as a base for further coatings or painting and zinc phosphates add corrosion resistance, lubricity and function as a base coat. State-of-the-Art Computer Automated Production Lines.

Phosphating Processes

Some of the phosphate coatings we use include:

  • Iron phosphating: 10 - 100 mg/sq.-ft.
  • Microcrystalline, calcium-modified zinc phosphate: 100 - 300 mg/sq.-ft.
  • Macrocrystalline, zinc phosphate: 1,000 - 3,000 mg/sq.-ft.
  • Etching and passivating
  • Conversion coating treatments for aluminum

Additional Savings Available

Instead of investing in and operating an in-house coating department, consider having Universal Coating apply the final paint, powder, lubricant or adhesive coating to your products. You'll save time and money.
