Activol® 8402 Economical Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 8402 is the most economical 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, quality protection, excellent rinsability, reduced acid consumption, reduced gage and metal loss, durability, reduced hydrogen embrittlement, fume reduction and results in uniformly bright pickled surfaces.

Sunspeed® PA-7 – Acid Pickling Accelerator

Sunspeed® PA-7 is an acid pickling accelerator containing organic compounds designed to accelerate scale removal from hot rolled steels. It was specifically developed* for use in hydrochloric acid pickling systems. It accelerates the reaction between the hydrochloric acid and scale components; FeO, Fe2O3 and Fe3O4 to increasing the rate of scale removal.

*Developed by Sugimura Chemical Industrial Company, Ltd.

Hamikleer® 2095 – Synthetic Coolant

Hamikleer® 2095 is a synthetic grinding and machining coolant concentrate designed to be used on both ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, and also on milling of scale from copper or brass strip. Solutions provide excellent rust protection for cast iron and ferrous alloys with no staining on zinc, copper, brass, and bronze. The solution keeps wheels clean and suspends metallic fines and swarf, preventing their precipitation on ways, tables, and other work surfaces. It will not turn rancid and does not cause dermatitis.

Hamikleen® 9002 – Sulfuric Acid Additive

Hamikleen® 9002 is a free-flowing granular additive for use in sulfuric acid pickling. This product produces a brighter, more uniformly pickled steel surface and provides excellent wetting properties to the bath.

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® 9012 – Sulfamic Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 9012 is a powdered inhibitor for use in pickling operations using sulfamic acid. It imparts maximum inhibiting properties to sulfamic acid solutions reacting on steel. Use at 1-2% of the sulfamic acid weight in pickling baths, for reducing metal loss, fume prevention and reduction of hydrogen embrittlement. This product is also used to clean boilers or other steam generation equipment where sulfamic acid is utilized.

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® 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® 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.

Atmoscleer® 8001 – Foam Blanket Additive

Atmoscleer® 8001 is a foam blanket additive for hydrochloric acid batch pickling baths. It imparts a densely packed, uniform layer of foam on the surface of a steel pickling bath. Some agitation may be required to generate the foam layer when there is not enough pickling action occurring, such as when the bath temperature is very low (below 1000F). It is extremely stable in hydrochloric acid baths containing high amounts of dissolved iron and under high temperature conditions. It cuts down on heat loss and holds corrosive hydrochloric fumes in the bath. It should be used in conjunction with Activol® acid inhibitors for hydrochloric acids, such as Activol® 1803, Activol® 1590-C, Activol® 1590–CP or Activol® 1903 for best results in batch pickling operations.
