The Study of Color Film Phosphating Process in Steel before Coating


Article Preview

This study through a lot of theoretical analysis and experimental exploration, come to add phytic acid and chromium alum in the traditional zinc phosphating solution for phosphating solution film-forming speed and improve the film density has a distinct effect, and further by orthogonal experiments and the final assessment of preferred a group of environmental, low-temperature, and no sediment of new phosphating process. The composition of the phosphating solution is as follow: zinc oxide 0.5g/L; phosphating acid 5.0mL/L; tartaric acid 0.75g/L; sodium molybdate 0.6g/L; Ma Jif salt 2.0g/L; NaF 0.25g/L; phytic acid 0.4mL/L; chromium alum 1.0g/L; free acidity 2-4 points; total acidity 15-18 points. The experimental results show that: the new phosphating process of this study reduces the handling costs, the stability bath performance, little changes in acidity, in the case of do not need to adjust the surface at room temperature, to forming a completed, dense, strong corrosion-resistant color phosphate crystal film on metal surface within 5 minutes, the copper sulfate bit time is 2.5mins, with good adhesion to 0, the impact resistance is 50kg/cm, it can be used in conjunction with a variety of coating processes.
