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.

Hamico® Neutralizer 809-L

Hamico® Neutralizer 809-L is a combination of liquid alkalis and surface-active (wetting) agents designed specifically for neutralizing acidic residues from ferrous metals after pickling operations.

Hamico® 1003 – Lubricating Oil

Hamico® 1003 is a light colored, transparent, odorless lubricating oil for machinery and equipment requiring an extremely clean condition with a light oil. It can be used in many applications where light lubrication is needed, e.g., forming, bending, stamping, straightening. It can be used on all metals as received, by pumping, dip, spray or wipe.

Aquatemp® 8304-WT – Cleaner and Rust Preventative

Aquatemp® 8304-WT is a new synthetic chemical mill cleaner/rust preventive combination providing maximum “dry finish” rust protection. It is used where no reduction is required or desired as in “skin passing,” or “wet tempering.” It can be applied in conventional ways via spray headers at the entry side of the mill or with an air wipe on the delivery side.

Aquatemp® 1860-LV-2 – Temper Mill Lubricant

Aquatemp® 1860-LV-2 is a low viscosity temper mill lubricant for application on coated products during tempering or “skin pass” processes. It cleans the mill and strip, reduces roll pickup, permits higher mill speeds than dry tempering operation and provides lubrication to achieve required elongations. It is a solvent based product which evaporates after processing and can be coated with petroleum based coating oils.

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® 1874 – Sulfuric Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 1874 is a pickling inhibitor for all sulfuric acid pickling operations. Activol® 1874 contains all the desired properties of a strong acid pickling additive including: high efficiency on carbon steels, good protection to alloys and silicon steels, a foam cover, wetting agents, excellent acid and temperature stability and fume control. Instantly soluble in sulfuric acid baths, it reduces acid drag-out and provides more uniform removal of scale from rod, wire and sheet steel. This product is also available in non-foaming version (Activol® 1874 –NF) for compatibility with sulfuric acid reclamation processes.

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® 1793-B – Sulfuric Acid Additive

Activol® 1793-B is a sulfuric acid inhibitor for batch pickling. It is one of our strongest inhibitors, is a good “wetter” and provides a more uniform pickle and a better rinse. Additionally, it eliminates acid fumes and reduces hydrogen embrittlement. Pickle Life 1673-D (acid extender) and Activol® 1793-B can be used in combination to extend the life of the acid bath to iron levels of 7-12%. Activol® 1793-NF is a non-foaming version which can be used in operations utilizing combustion heating.

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.
