Phosphates are applied to impart lubricity (anti-galling), wear and corrosion resistance, and as a base for paints, powder coating and corrosion inhibiting oils.  Phosphates, by themselves give some corrosion resistance, but because of the crystalline nature of the coatings, they quickly absorb corrosion inhibiting oils and waxes. They form a tightly adherent coating with the base metal and, because of their crystalline nature, make excellent bases for paints and other materials.

Similar to Manganese phosphate, Zinc phosphate maybe slightly better anti-galling/lubricity characteristics.  Less expensive than manganese.
