Hamico® 8936 – Rinse Aid

Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid is an additive for rinse systems after pickling steel using hydrochloric or sulfuric acids. Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid prevents the formation of iron hydroxide slimes which typically occur in rinse tanks and prevents surface discoloration on steel exiting the bath. Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid complexes ferrous iron, thus preventing it from re-depositing.

Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid buffers the rinse water against sudden drops in pH, due to acid carryover from pickling tanks and protects from flash rusting after rinse operations. It may be used in hot or cold baths.

Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid is easy to handle and is not corrosive to the skin.

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.

Rainkote® NC – Stain Prevention Additive

Rainkote® NC is an additive to prevent line-stop stain in the rinse section of hydrochloric or sulfuric acid pickling lines. It is an acidic product possessing corrosion protection and wetting. It is designed to eliminate brown or reddish stains often experienced on the steel strip exiting a continuous pickler. It eliminates the formation of iron hydroxide slimes which accumulate in rinse tanks as a result of acid bath carryover.

Due to its non-chelating components, it is compatible with waste treatment processes where removal of metals like iron, copper, zinc, and chromium must be accomplished to meet limits for effluents.

Hamico® 8906-WT – Rinse Aid

Hamico® 8906-WT Rinse Aid is a stain preventing additive for rinse systems following hydrochloric or sulfuric acid pickling operations. It is an acidic product possessing corrosion protection and wetting. It is designed to eliminate the brown or reddish stains often experienced on steel exiting a continuous pickler. It eliminates the formation of iron hydroxide slimes which accumulate in rinse tanks as a result of acid bath carryover.

Mill Purge® 1812 – Industrial Maintenance Cleaner

Mill Purge® 1812 is an industrial maintenance cleaner for floors, machinery, sumps, kettles and vats, etc. It is also used in ultrasonic cleaning, dip tank cleaning of steel, cast iron and aluminum parts and equipment.

Steelgard® 8920-K — Rust Prevention for Acidic Environments

Steelgard® 8920-K is an indoor rust preventive for steel stored in an acidic atmosphere such as a pickling department. It is designed primarily for protection against hydrochloric (muriatic) acid vapors. It deposits an oily film and is a very low odor product. It protects against staining and contact corrosion in tightly wrapped steel coils.

Steelgard® 2005 — Temper Mill Lubricant

Steelgard® 2005 is a new innovation for use as a temper mill fluid for coated products replacing straight oils, solvents or the practice of dry tempering. In addition to preventing white rust, it produces a better “healed-over” surface, reduces roll pick-up, permits higher mill speed and achieves elongations with lower roll force.

Pickle Life® 1673-D – Sulfuric Acid Extender

Pickle Life® 1673-D is an additive for extending the useful life of sulfuric acid pickling baths up to 12% iron.

Immunol® AC-20 – Maintenance Acid Cleaner

Immunol® AC-20 an acid cleaner for use on equipment or floors stained with oxide or rust. It renews the appearance of equipment to a bright, shiny finish and protects against flash rust. Just mix with water, apply, let it perform and rinse off.

Hamicote® EF-317 – Lime Bath Additive

Hamicote® EF-317 is an additive for lime or borax solutions to improve cohesive and adhesive properties and to disperse and suspend lime or borax more uniformly throughout the bath and on the rod while retarding rust and minimizing foam. Hamicote® EF-317 prevents powdering and dusting of dried lime and borax films and improves die life.
