Kephos Lightweight Coating

Kephos has now been replaced by Fosgard 109 Coating. This is a lightweight phosphate coating with excellent adhesion properties. It is a single or dual coat phosphate paint system that affords good resistance to chemical attack and is especially suited to environments where brake fluid and similar oils are present. Fosgard lightweight coating provides a durable black satin finish. One of the main advantages is that due to its coating thickness of 10µm it is possible to inspect for cracks using magnetic, ultrasonic and x-ray techniques without the need for coating removal.
