Zinc phosphate is used as a coating for corrosion resistance on various types of metal surfaces. Zinc phosphate is applied on metal surfaces as part of an electroplating process or they are directly applied as a primer pigment. The zinc phosphate coating can be applied more effectively on a crystalline structure than a bare metal. The natural forms of zinc phosphate typically include minerals such as hopeite and parahopeite. Zinc phosphate is typically created from zinc phosphate cement. The compound is mainly used in dentistry. Zinc phosphate cement is one of the most extensively used cements, and is generally used as a base for dental restorations and for luting metal restorations.
