Applications & directions for use
Before commencing work with VECINOX PICKLING PASTE 14LN, safety precautions must be observed and protective equipment made use of. The product is to be stirred with a plastic or wood stirrer before use.
VECINOX PICKLING PASTE 14LN is to be painted generously on the pickling positions. The reaction time should be observed.
Upon completion, the process surface is to be rinsed under cold water, using a high-pressure water jet at a pressure of at least 120 bar. The rinsing effect can be improved and enhanced by employing plastic or stainless steel wire brushes. The washwater should then be neutralised with neutralising liquid or calcium hydroxide.
REACTION TIME PERIODS
Rusty and acid-resistant steels, stainless steels: 15 – 60 minutes.
The reaction time period depends on the quality of the materials that are to be treated, as well as on the ambient air and materials temperature. The optimal pickling temperature is 18 – 20°C. Working in direct sunlight should be avoided because of the danger of premature drying.
