Pickling Descaling

Compound selection is the key to the removal of scale, rust and oxides from heat treatment in a mass finishing process. Using normal compounds will not effectively clean the parts. It is critical to remove the impurities from the surface and pores of the parts. Pickling and descaling can be accomplished by either acidic or alkaline compounds.
