Metal Pickling Services

Our metal pickling and descaling services involve a high-temperature hydrochloric acid bath used to remove iron oxide (black scale) from steel.

A pickled product has many plusses. First in the area of cutting or burning a product. When a material is pickled it no longer has the scale on its surface making it much easier for a laser or any cutting apparatus to profile an exact part.

Secondly, most manufacturers find that it is much easier to clean a surface from weld splatter after fabricating a product due to the pickled and oiled surface.

After fabrication, a manufacturer can proceed directly to wash and then paint which allows for the skipping the blasting phase. Having a clean pickled surface lends itself to have an enhanced finish.
