Different classes of additives are available depending upon specific requirements, such as accelerators, inhibitors, fume reducer, silicate and heat scale eliminators. Acid pickling Acid Pickling is the removal of metallic oxides by immersion. Pickling falls into several categories: heavy-duty to eliminate heat scale, light-duty to remove light rust and moderate oxidation such as spot welding marks and tarnish. It also activates passive films and bright dipping to bring out fresh, clean and lustrous surface. Gictane 70Powdered replacement for hydrofluoric acid. It is added to acid pickles for removal of colloidal and siliceous films and ensures brighter and more adherent electrodeposits. It is also an additive to sulphuric acid to promote pickling of Aluminium alloys, Stainless Steel and Titanium. Gictane 73Powdered, acidic material used in water for removal of silicate and oxide films from most metals and facilitates excellent adhesion of subsequent electro deposits. It does not attack sensitive metals.Gictane 85A dry acid salt when added to water, activates a variety of metals, removes light scales and oxides. Recommended for Nickel plating.Gictane 86Specially blended liquid based acid dip for Zinc die cast material, removes light scales & oxides.Gictane 90It is designed to be used in the cathodic activation process for ferrous components utilizing 20% sulphuric acid. Does not etch base material. Ideal choice for activating welded areas of automotive components before plating.Gictane 100Twin additive system, designed to replace the usage of strong mineral acid such as hydrochloric acid, actsas etch promoter and also as an inhibitor, ensures desired activation & rust removal when used withsulphuric acid in place of more corrosive hydrochloric acid.Pickle Aid AcceleratorUnique salt used with sulphuric acid, pickles to accelerate removal of hard scales produced during carborising, case hardening and heat treatment of iron and steel. Acid inhibitors Gictane Inhibitor 11An economical acid inhibitor for both sulphuric or hydrochloric acid, applicable for a variety of steels including high carbon steels. Also prevents deposition of copper on steel by immersion from acid pickles.Gictane Inhibitor 12Efficient inhibitor for continuous pickling line.Gictane Inhibitor 19Highly efficient inhibitor for sulphuric acid pickling process. Specially, designed to be used in continuous pickling process.Gictane Inhibitor 21Highly efficient inhibitor for hydrochloric acid pickling process. Specially, designed to be used in continuous pickling process.Gictane AAAUsed in sulphuric, phosphoric, hydrofluoric or hydrochloric acid pickles to reduce fuming; increases surface setting to promote better pickling. Also prevents redeposition of oil. Close X Know More Close X Know More DISCLAIMER : Our recommendations are made in good faith and are based on our skills.
