Industrial applications - Metal treatment

Metal treatment

Metal phosphating Cars, refrigerators, washing machines, and other painted or enameled equipment all have a phosphated coating between the metallic surface and the paint. Purified phosphoric acid and phosphates are used in the process of phosphating metal surfaces. This operation (*) reduces the risk of metals corroding, insulates them electrically, and encourages paint to adhere to the treated surface.
