Specialty chemicals for production and maintenance in the steel industry

Steel processing includes diverse processes to transform crude steel into various end products. During the production and thermal treatment of the raw material metal, a layer (scale) forms on the surface due to oxidation, which makes efficient further processing of the material much more difficult. During pickling, acids are used to dissolve the oxide or scale layer and other corrosion products from the metal surface, but the base metal is also undesirably damaged in the process. This leads to material loss, unnecessary acid consumption and so-called pickling damage in the form of pore formation, over-pickling or hydrogen embrittlement. Remedy is provided by pickling inhibitors such as the ADACID, which significantly optimize the process. After the pickling process, corrosion inhibitors such as KEBOCOR are also used.

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.
