Heatbath » Acid Pickling

Removal of surface rust, heat treat scale, and oxides is a critical step in surface preparation prior to any metal finishing process.  Heatbath® Corporation offers a variety of choices for acid pickling including dry acid pickling salts and proprietary acid pickling mixtures – either hydrochloric or phosphoric acid based.  Acid inhibitors can be used to control the activity of your acid pickling bath and to prevent undo attack on the base metal.  In addition, we have a specialty line of Stainless Steel brighteners and passivates.
