Zinc Phosphate coatings serve as a base for organic coating by providing a crystal structure to which the subsequent organic coating can mechanically bond to. The coating is gray in appearance, and the finish can reduce reflectivity of base materials. CCI’s Zinc Phosphate coating meets the defense industry's application specification TT-C-490/ Mil-Std 171, Finish# 5.1.1.

- Defense industry: CARC and non-reflective finish
- Automotive: pretreatment for organic finish
- Bearings/gears: holding lubricants or break-in of moving parts
- Aerospace: break-in of moving parts or pretreatment for specialty coatings
