Step 2. Conditioners






Used prior to the conversion coating stage with no rinse between the stages to leave a chemical deposit of conditioner to aid in the development of the proper phosphate crystals on the metal surface.

Conditioners for Manganese Phosphate

Conditioners for Zinc Phosphate

Step 3. Conversion Coatings






Iron Phosphate Cleaner Coaters
♦ Clean and deposit an iron phosphate conversion coating on metal service prior to painting
♦ Wipe-on, spray wand and three-stage washer products are available.

Iron Phosphate Conversion Coatings
♦ Convert the metal surface to a nonmetalic, iron phosphate coating
♦ Inhibit corrosion
♦ Increases the adhesion and durability of paint finishes

Manganese Phosphate
♦ Corrosion resistant
♦ Reduces wear
♦ Increases lubrication of treated surfaces due to the oil-absorptive coating
♦ Removes light metal scratches remaining from machining operations

Non-Phosphate / Nano Technology
♦ Environmentally responsible alternative to traditional phosphate coatings
♦ Low energy
♦ Low maintenance
♦ Low waste treatment costs

Zinc Phosphate
Converts metal surface to nonmetallic, polycrystalline zinc phosphate coating

Light Metal Conversion Coatings
♦ Excellent paint base and bonding surface for aluminum substrates
♦ RoHS compliant
♦ Chrome-free or trivalent chrome products are available
♦ Conversion coatings for mil-spec applications are also offered
