Manganese Phosphate / Zinc Phosphate / Iron Phosphate
For 50 year’s DIXIE has provided phosphate coatings to parts for the following industries; construction heavy equipment, automotive, transportation, aerospace, air compressor, springs, armament and other various fabricated, machined or stamped products.
Manganese Phosphate, Zinc Phosphate and Iron Phosphate are the treatment of iron or steel by immersion in a solution of phosphoric acid and other compounds. During the process the surface of the metal is chemically converted to form a protective layer of Manganese Phosphate, Zinc Phosphate or Iron Phosphate crystals.
The physical characteristics of the base metal and the pretreatment methods used determine the size and color of the crystalline finish. The color will be:
