Oxide scale and other surface impurities are abrasive, decreasing formability and die life in drawing applications. Also, oxide scale affects how well metallic coatings and paint adhere to a steel surface. Your pickling process will be designed to yield cleaned, oiled steel with excellent surface quality and optimum metallurgical conditioning for your needs.
Push-pull pickling allows us to process a wider range of steel grades. It also opens up more flexible scheduling for you. The "pickle bath" that we run the coil through is a diluted solution of inorganic acid, usually hydrochloric.
The hydrochloric acid is reused to neutralize alkaline wastewater at treatment plants.
