    In the realm of the automotive industry, suspension parts and steering components play a vital role in ensuring smooth rides and precise handling. As the demand for high-performance vehicles continues to surge, manufacturers like GDST have emerged as pioneers in the industry, specializing in the production of top-quality suspension and steering parts. Recognizing that surface treatment is a critical factor in optimizing the functionality and durability of these components, GDST has been at the forefront of developing and refining advanced surface treatment techniques. By harnessing the power of innovative coatings and finishes, GDS has revolutionized the performance and longevity of suspension and steering parts, solidifying its position as the industry leader. In this article, we will explore the surface treatment methods in the context of suspension and steering parts, delving into GDST’s product information.

    Surface treatment methods for suspension parts and steering parts

    There are several surface treatment methods that can be used for suspension parts and steering parts, depending on the specific requirements and materials involved. Here are some commonly used surface treatment methods:

    • Blackening: Also called bluing, the metal surface reacts with chemical materials to form a protective film on the metal surface which provides mild corrosion resistance and enhances the appearance of the part, and its film composition is mainly ferric oxide. There are different colors in different materials, generally seen more are: black, blue-black, blue, and brown-red. The main reason for the color difference is in the steel material; Carbon, silicon, manganese, chromium, nickel, and other elements influence.

    • Electrophoretic deposition (EPD): EPD is an electrocoating process where a charged paint or resin is deposited onto the surface of the suspension parts using an electric field. EPD provides uniform coating thickness, good corrosion resistance, and can penetrate recessed areas effectively, but the edge of suspension parts will fall off the paint, so we have to do a salt spray test: also known as the salt fog test or salt mist test, is a standardized corrosion test used to evaluate the corrosion resistance of materials and surface treatments.

    • Phosphating: Phosphating is a chemical conversion coating process that creates a film of phosphate crystals on the surface of the metal. Phosphating improves corrosion resistance and provides a good base for subsequent painting or coating. The main component of the phosphate film is iron phosphate salt, and its color: gray, off-white, gray-black, and black. Different main salt and different phosphating process colors and film structure vary, but they mostly are loose porous structures (that can be more storage of anti-rust substances).

    The difference between blackening and phosphating is very different in the process and agent selection. Blackening is mainly boiled with sodium hydroxide and sodium nitrite at 135-145 degrees. Its alkaline is stronger. The main components of phosphating are phosphoric acid and main salt, such as zinc, calcium, manganese, etc. Temperatures range from 5 to 95 degrees. Phosphating corrosion resistance is much better than blackening. Such as manganese phosphating (after applying rust prevention oil) corrosion resistance is 10-20 times better than blackening. So at present, phosphating has the potential to replace blackening (bluing).
