Low Temperature Formation of Inorganic Conversion Coatings for Ferrous Substrates
Invention Summary:Coatings that provide a passivating barrier of very low solubility through a conversion of the metal surface into a corrosion-resistant, non reactive form, play an important role in coating technology. Conversion coatings are often absorbent, providing an ideal base for protective oils, waxes or dyes. They are also used for high-t...
