Phosphate Coating Services

Phosphating is a chemical process widely used on metal parts, either as a stand-alone barrier coating or a primer under other coatings such as Xylan, metalizing or Teflon. Phosphate coating services are typically performed for enhanced wear and corrosion resistance, improved lubricity, and better adhesion of subsequent organic coatings or paint. Applied to threaded parts, followed by an oil top coat, phosphate coating adds anti-galling and rust inhibiting characteristics.

Gartner Coatings, a full-service metal finisher, performs high-quality phosphating services at our Houston area coating facilities to meet the specific needs of our customers.

Conversion Coating: About Phosphate Coating

Phosphating is a commonly used metal surface treatment or pretreatment process that involves a reaction between the metal surface of a part being coated and a chemical solution applied, either by spraying or immersion. In this conversion coating process, a diluted solution of phosphoric acid and phosphate salts chemically react with the metal surface to form a uniform, protective layer of non-metallic crystalline coating. Various factors such as the cleaning process, a properly maintained phosphating solution, and how the solution is applied control results.

Customers in a wide variety of industries rely on Gartner Coatings’ expertise in phosphate conversion coating to get the high-quality metal finishing results they need. We currently have a medium-sized vat for dipping parts and have plans to acquire a larger tank to expand our offering of this service for bigger pieces.
