Kwik Strip’s method of rust removal involves immersion of steelwork in our acid bath. The processing time is dependent on the amount of corrosion present on the article.
We prefer to use a 100% inhibited phosphoric acid base to pickle away all corrosion whilst leaving the clean steel untouched. This method can take slightly longer than others but has payback from a safety point of view in that all un-corroded metal remains unaffected by the pickling process.
Acid dipping treatment is followed by a hot water-blast to remove all traces of the acid medium
