Pickling

ADACID – inhibitors comply with all requirements for good inhibitors with regard to the acid concentration, iron content a.s.o., our programme comprises inhibitors for hydrochloric and sulfuric acid. ADACID types highly reduce the dissolution velocity of the metal whilst the dissolution velocity of the oxides is only reduced to a small extent.

For phosphoric and mixtures of acids our LITHSOLVENT types already provide an optimal protection of the metallic materials at very small quantities. The efficiency of our inhibitors results in saving the acid quantity at the pickling which otherwise is uselessly consumed for the dissolution of metallic iron.

The economical advantages in the plant are clearly shown: savings in material, no overpickling, improvement of quality, savings of acid, no foam formation in regeneration plants. In many areas ADACID inhibitors have become indispensable.
