Manganese phosphating is generally for oil-retention for machine parts, Marta. Zinc phosphatizing in a 7-step process would be my vote. However, proprietary zinc phosphates, perhaps calcium-modified or otherwise modified, will probably be superior to a generic handbook-formulated phosphate.

Spraying is generally accepted as slightly superior because of the mechanical energy of the impingement. However, you might want to consider integrating the phosphatizing with e-coating and, in that case, logistics would probably dictate that the phosphatizing be done by immersion because the e-coating will be.
