New phosphate black coatings for the improvement of mechanical properties on metallic objects have been developed to extend life time of machinery. The performance of phosphate black coatings was evaluated by weight gain studies, micro hardness studies, abrasive wear resistance and corrosion resistant measurement by electrochemical methods. The surface morphology of the coatings was assessed by XRD, SEM and XPS. The absorption coefficient of the coatings was evaluated by UV-visible spectrometer. Salt spray analysis was carried out to follow up the corrosion and get an idea about the performance of black coatings in automobile parts. The mechanical properties were very much improved after heat treatment of coatings at 200°C.
