CORROSION OF ZINC PHOSPHATE
Why is that, sometimes the zinc phosphate coated areas become corroded, is it due to environment, contamination or any other factors? How long a zinc phosphated are can stand corrosion ?Norakmar A. Latiff

If the zinc phosphate is kept well oiled it might resist 48 hours of salt spray, Norakmar, but phosphate is not intended to be a corrosion resistant finish -- it's a pretreatment for paint or powder coating. Good luck.
