BY COMPLETEGREEN PROCESS
2-STEP TO 4-STEP PROCESS (MAXIMUM)
SAVING A LOT OF CONVENTIONAL STEPS, LABOR, TIME, COST & ENERGY
ELIMINATES ACID, PHOSPHATE, CHROMATE, CHEMICAL SEALER, WASTE DISPOSAL, WASTE TREATMENT, SLUDGE & DOWN TIME FROM THE METAL SURFACE PREPARATION & PRE-TREATMENT PROCESS BEFORE FINISHING
ALSO, ELIMINATES SANDING OR BLASTING OF NEW METAL SURFACE
WORKS ON BOTH FERROUS & NON-FERROUS METAL SURFACE INCLUDING STAINLESS STEEL & GALVANIZED STEEL
The only Pre-treatment/Conversion coating which removes surface rust, white rust, weld scale and laser scale while providing a pre-treatment/conversion coating & seal in just one step.
Completely prepares the Metal surface for Priming, Liquid painting, Powder coating, E-coating, Hard Chrome plating, Anodizing, Galvanizing etc.
PICKLEX(R) is the only pre-treatment/conversion coating which can withstand around 2000°F baking temperature (For High temperature Paint or Ceramic coating)
Short & Easy way to Passivate Stainless Steel
& prepare for clear coating, laminating etc.
eliminating Nitric Acid Passivation
No Waste Disposal, No Waste Treatment, No Sludge
Already Eliminated over a Million Gallons of Hazardous/Toxic Chemicals from Metal Surface Preparation & Pre-treatment Process
Keeping the Environment Clean One company at a time
SINCE 1998, THERE HAS BEEN NO RUST PROBLEM, ADHESION OR QUALITY FAILURE
Complete Metal Surface Preparation and Pre-treatment
For Ferrous and Non-ferrous metal surface
Environmentally safe, Non-hazardous and Water Based product
Picklex® Process eliminates the conventional acid etching/pickling, phosphating, chromating and chemical sealer from the metal surface preparation and pre-treatment process before finishing such as powder coating, liquid painting, e-coating, electroplating etc.
Picklex® Process has no waste disposal, no waste treatment, no suldge, no concentration adjustment, no regular monitoring, no down time
Picklex® removes laser scale, weld scale, surface rust, white rust etc. from the steel & aluminum surface, eliminating media blasting and acid treatment
Picklex® eliminates Nitric acid passivation and passivates stainless steel
Very Long-Term Indoor Rust Protection (in terms of years)
Tested and published by US EPA as a nonpolluting and cost effective metal surface preparation, pretreatment and conversion coating before finishing
Picklex® provides equal or better quality results than phosphates and chromate for most finishing systems
Picklex®is the only pre-treatment/conversion coating which completely removes oxidation from the metal surface while providing a pre-treatment/conversion coating and seal the coating, all at the same time in one step.
Since Picklex® removes all oxidation and stops the oxidation process, the chances of adhesion (bonding) failure is zero.
Other Product: Picklex® 20 One-Step Metal Surface Preparation by manual process
Picklex® 20 performs multiple jobs in one single application as shown below:
Metal surface cleaner
Flash Rust remover (both red rust and white rust, eliminates acid etching)
Rust inhibitor (provides indoor rust protection in terms of several years)
Rust converter (converts 100% rust to a protective/conversion coating)
De-scaling/de-rusting (replaces acid pickling or blasting)
Provides Protective coating (conversion coating)
Complete Surface preparation for welding & anti-spatter
Complete metal surface preparation and pre-treatment for finishing
Only product in the market for complete surface preparation for galvanized steel for painting/powder coating, eliminating blasting or chromate treatment.
Works on cold rolled steel including stainless steel, aluminum, galvanized steel etc. (any ferrous & non-ferrous metal surface)
Therefore, this single product can be used as a metal surface cleaner, rust remover, rust inhibitor, rust converter, protective coating (for long term rust protection), complete metal surface preparation/pre-treatment chemical before welding and also for finishing such as priming, liquid painting, powder coating etc.
