Parkerizing process(according to Krause):

Take 0,18 lit pure phosphoric acid mix it with 0,18 lit water add 90 gms iron fillings when all iron is dissolved add 18,5 lit water,immerse objects in hot solution 30 - 180 min.

Good luck!

Do you have a formula for Manganese Phosphate solution ? for Parkerising. Brownells [linked by editor to Brownells website] have one in the USA but it is not available in Australia, and they won't send it due to probs sending Chems by post or Courier..

You can use 30-40 gm manganese phosphate /1 lit water solution! Good luck!

according to W. Machu: Nichtmetallische Ueberzuge,Wien 1952.

Read Goran's suggestion of Manganese Phosphate in water....
Isn't manganese phosphate insoluble in water ?

Where is a source of Manganese phosphate, I have googled it to death with no luck. All refer to using it but where do you get it?

Hi, Jan. Manganese phosphate in this sense is not a commodity chemical, but a chemical process which you buy from a manufacturer or distributor of metal finishing chemicals. You can start in our Chemicals & Consumables directory and look for "phosphate". Good luck.
