WHAT IS THE PHOSPHATING PROCESS
I REALLY NEED A COMPLETE DESCRIPTION OF THE WHOLE PHOSPHATING PROCESS & ITS ADVANTAGES.. ALSO ANYTHING AVAILABLE ABOUT NICKEL COATINGS THANKSJimy Zein
STUDY - CAIRO, Egypt
It's out of print, but Samuel Spring's "Preparation of Metal for Painting" [link is to info about the book at Amazon] is a book I've read that I can recommend as what you're looking for.
Another book that sounds exactly right, but which I personally haven't seen is "Phosphating of Metals" [link is to info about the book at Amazon] by Werner Rauch
Nickel plating is covered in every plating book on our "must-have" booklist. Good luck in the study.
