How to Use Steel Pickling Inhibitor?
In a previous letter [ltr. no . 6622] I was told that 1:4 butyne-diol is a good inhibitor for steel pickling (in 5% sulphuric acid), used at .0-.5%. My question is whether or not there is any specific way to add the inhibitor to the pickling bath, or is it simply dissolved into the bath.Ron Patel
