XL Quality

XL’s in-house Chemical Engineering Department has developed a 5-stage iron phosphate coating system to ensure every XL Service Body is corrosion-protected prior to powder coating.

5-Stage Iron Phosphate Coating System.
After extensive cleaning, every XL Body is totally submerged in five 12,000 litre chemical and filtered water tanks:

  • Tank 1 – Alkaline cleaner heated to remove grease and debris.
  • Tank 2 – Filtered demineralised water rinse.
  • Tank 3 – Phosphate solution etches the product surface and applies a uniform iron phosphate coating.
  • Tank 4 – Filtered demineralised water rinse.
  • Tank 5 – Polymer solution seals the iron phosphate coating for superior corrosion protection and enhanced powder coat adhesion.
