Inhibitor for stainless steel pickling?





November 21, 2008

I am developing a pickling solution for stainless steel without pickling inhibitor. Everything works fine except the life span of bath is short. Can you recommend some pickling inhibitor to be used?
Thank you.

Regards,
Amanda

Hi, Amanda. I think that inhibitors favor one reaction and slow other reactions, and that it's not going to be possible to suggest an inhibitor until you tell us what kind of stainless you are trying to pickle, and what acids you are trying to do it with, so we know what those reactions are. But you might contact an inhibitor supplier like Henkel and get some general info about what is available.
