Effect of phosphate coatings on temperature of metal parts exposed to flame environments

George C. Fryburg, Norman H. Katz, Sidney L. Simon
Jul 1956

The effect of phosphate coatings on the temperature of metal specimens placed in a flame was investigated. Since flames contain large numbers of atoms and radicals that react on metal surface liberating heat, it was thought that a phosphate coating might decrease the temperature of the metal by poisoning the surface to these reactions.
