Specialty chemicals to protect against pickling damage in galvanizing plants

Galvanizing plants take care of the surfaces of metal products (usually steel) and coat them with zinc by machine to protect them from corrosion. Compared to non-metallic coatings, a zinc coating provides active corrosion protection by acting as a galvanic anode to the more noble iron. A special form of galvanizing is the so-called electroplating, an electrochemical deposition of metallic coatings on the treated objects. Chemical products are used in galvanizing plants, for example, for degreasing and as inhibitors in the hydrochloric acid pickling process, where they protect against undesirable damage to the base metal.

The products shown on our website are only a selection of our entire product range. There is no universal remedy for the rapid removal of impurities. Some can be removed well with alkaline agents, others better in the acidic range. The large variety of conceivable cleaning problems and the large number of additives, inhibitors and ready-to-use cleaning solutions offered by us make it advisable to obtain detailed advice before starting cleaning.
The same applies to inhibitors, defoamers, scale preventers, corrosion inhibitors, pickling inhibitors, etc. Depending on the plant, material, product and the type of boiler/cooling water is used, different individual challenges arise. We are well equipped for them.

Talk to us, we will be happy to help!
On request, we can analyze deposits in our laboratory and develop a cleaning strategy based on our many years of experience, taking into account the conditions on site.
