The Specialist Plating Supplier View Cart Pickling

Pickling is a method of surface preparation generally used to remove rusts, oxides and scales prior to electroplating in an acidic solution (but can occasionally be alkaline). Whilst degreasing by various means will remove shop soils which will stop electro-deposition, the process will – in most cases, not remove these oxides and scales.

Dry Acid Salts

Dry Acid Salts are economical to use, giving a long effective bath life with a reduction in maintenance periods. As the product is a powder, Dry Acid Salts are safe to use and store. The absence of fumes during operation improves working conditions and reduces equipment corrosion.


Dry Acid Salts can be used at ambient or elevated temperatures by either soak or electrolytic application.
