Oxylene vs iron phosphate



(-----) January 30, 2008

I have been advised by the powder coater for my products that they can now do a oxylene instead of iron phosphate rinse on my mild steel enclosures. What is oxylene?

Hi, Darren. It should be a simple matter to ask the vendor for information on this because they apparently are using it, and they must have a technical data sheet in order to operate it and an MSDS to use it safely, and it may be a trade name.

Googling the term leads to a health food supplement, the chemical compound o-xylene, and other meanings; and you may be misspelling it anyway if this is all just verbal.

But o-xylene is a "solvent wipe" and a completely unsatisfactory replacement for iron phosphate in many instances.

It's probably a variation of the nanotechnology that's being pushed here in the states. It is strange that he would tell you that it's available(or worse yet that you should use it) without telling you what it is.

OXYLENE, mmmmm...., It is OrthoXYLENE, it is a solvent that shall do degreasing effectively no doubt, but rust prevention, I doubt, There may not be flash rusting and rust during coating, but ultimately I am worried about its on field performance.

Kindly check a panel cleaned and cured with oxylene, and do a salt spray test to withstand atleast for 28 hours in 3% brine solution as per IS.
