Phosphating of tool steel



2004

We use a casting of CH13 (hot worked tool steel investment casting)for our component making. This casting undergoes heat treatment (spherodising, machining, gas carburising, hardening and tempering, Hardness = 60 HRC) followed by sand blasting for surface cleaning.

While performing manganese phosphating, we find white patches. We are looking for a uniform black colour. Can someone help to avoid white patches. Phosphating is followed by tectyl 272 oiling. Corrosion test (as per ASTM ASTM B117 [affil. link to spec at Techstreet] ) on the component with white patches show a good corrosion resistance.

Q. Dear sir

We are also facing the white patches after manganese phosphating. Can any one suggest the same for better control?
