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.

Hamico® 8934 – Rinse Aid

Hamico® 8934 Rinse Aid is a stain preventing additive for rinse systems for use after 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. Hamico® 8934 Rinse Aid is compatible with waste treatment processes where removal of metals like iron, copper, zinc, and chromium must be accomplished to meet limits for effluents.

This product prevents carryover products from depositing on the immersed steel surface and protects the rinsed surface before drying occurs. Hamico® 8934 Rinse Aid is low-foaming to make water treatment and disposal easier and employs a tracer to make it easy to make concentration determinations using a test kit.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
