Activol® 1658 – Pickling Acid Additive

Activol® 1658 is a wetting and detergency additive for pickling and acid brightening baths. It is extremely stable to both high electrolyte and oxidation and can be used in the nitric and nitric/hydrofluoric acid combinations used for pickling stainless steels, zirconium, titanium, and other highly alloyed or exotic metals. This acid additive is classified as a medium “foamer” and will produce a foam blanket to hold down toxic oxide fumes and steam vapor.

Activol® 1357 – Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 1357 is an acid additive for sulfuric, hydrochloric, nitric and hydrofluoric acid pickling and cleaning solutions and may be used as specialty additive on titanium in nitric acid baths. Activol® 1357 reduces surface tension, accelerates acid action and provides detergency in solution. This product also serves as a mild acid inhibitor to minimize acidic attack on base metal during scale removal. It promotes complete rinsing and reduces fume formation.
