Actispeed® 450 – Acid Accelerator

Actispeed® 450 is a combination acid pickling inhibitor and descaling accelerator for hydrochloric acid pickling systems. This additive inhibits acid attack on base metal and accelerates scale removal from hot-rolled steels by up to 30%.

Activol® 2105 – Hydrochloric Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 2105 is the latest development in hydrochloric acid inhibitor technology, surpassing the level of protection to the base steel afforded by its predecessor, Activol® 1803. Activol® 2105 contains all the performance characteristics of a good pickling inhibitor, such as fume suppression, free-rinsing, reduced chloride carry-over, as well as reduced acid consumption due to superior base metal protection.

Activol® 1803 – Hydrochloric Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 1803 is the most efficient member of a line of hydrochloric acid pickling bath additives formulated for continuous hydrochloric picklers, including deep bath conventional and shallow dynamic systems. It provides all the requirements of a good pickling inhibitor including: descaling ability, high % efficiency (protection), excellent rinsability, reduced acid consumption, reduced gage and metal loss, durability, reduced hydrogen embrittlement, fume reduction and results in uniformly bright pickled surfaces.

Activol® 1590-CP – Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 1590-CP is an acid additive for hydrochloric acid pickling solutions which imparts both “wetting” and detergency, while inhibiting base metal attack and offering fume control. Particularly useful in low temperature batch or continuous operations, Activol® 1590-CP prevents over-pickling and provides acid savings, reduces metal weight loss, fumes and hydrogen embitterment. This acid additive produces a bright uniform finish, prolongs pickle tank life, increases the speed of the pickling process and makes clear solutions in all acid concentrations which will not break down in acid storage tanks.
