Low temperature, nickel-free, nitrate-accelerated, microcrystalline calcium modified zinc phosphate

KeyKote 514 is production proven to deliver phosphate coating thicknesses of 1.5 to 6 μm (weight 3 – 12 g/m²). Customer feedback has also confirmed that it produces less sludge in operation.

KeyKote 514 is a direct replacement for;

  • Chlorate accelerated and/or
  • Nitrate-accelerated
  • Nickel-containing (as well as nickel free)

Microcrystalline phosphate products currently used for corrosion protection or friction coefficient adjustment in combination with suitable oils and friction modifiers.

MacDermid engineering phosphates include zinc, manganese, and iron phosphate processes:

  • Heavy weight zinc and zinc/iron phosphates to provide corrosion resistance and to facilitate cold forming
  • Medium weight zinc phosphate for the bonding of rubber and adhesives
  • Heavy weight manganese phosphate for wear reduction and corrosion resistance
  • Nickel-free zinc and manganese phosphates are available
  • Vinbrite and Phosphotex corrosion protective oils and waxes provide superior corrosion resistance and lubrication


Aqueous cleaners for the engineering and metal working industries:

  • Removal of metal working fluids, coolant, oil, grease, swarf and other shop soils
  • Used prior to inspection, assembly, heat treatment or between operations
  • Nitrite and boron free rust inhibition and formaldehyde-free biocides
  • Suitable for most types of cleaning plant including dunk, spray and immersion
  • Provides a reliable alternative to solvent cleaning
