Paint chip-off

++++

Greetings!

I would like to ask, what are the probable causes of paint chip-off after phosphating has already been done to the metal?

Thanks!

Hi Richard,

Poor cleaning, poor phosphating, poor rinsing, poor paint application and poor paint curing are possible causes for your problem.

The most common cause I have seen over the years is poor rinsing prior to phosphating. The phosphate forms crystals on the surface due to a pH change. This is normally the result of the acid reacting with the metal. A layer of soap gives the required pH change to form the crystals without any real adhesion to the metal.
