K-Phos is a major breakthrough in the field of corrosion protection. It was developed
to provide a simple method of applying an organic sealed phosphate coating to metal.
Highly resistant to rust and corrosion, it provides an excellent bond for Gun Kote.
Easily applied, K-Phos offers the protection against rust and corrosion formerly
available only by means of a complex system of tanks and solutions. Surfaces treated
with K-Phos can be exposed to weather for several days until a final finish is
applied without losing its protective effectiveness.
Chipping and Peeling
Because of the fine crystalline structure of the phosphate coating that is combined
with the organic binder, K-Phos provides improved impact and bend resistance, superior
to conventional phosphate treatments.
In laboratory tests, steel panels treated only with K-Phos have been subjected
to the standard salt test for 72 hours without a breakdown of the coating. Painted
panels, scored through to bright metal, after 250 hours showed a fine line of rust
only where the bare metal was exposed.
Meets Government Requirement
K-Phos meets the requirements of specifications Mil-C-490A and TT-C-490 applicable
to phosphate coatings.
