Pickle is the immersion of metals in an acid solution to remove scale and rust caused by heat treat, annealing, casting and soldering. We can pickle fully machined parts with our rack process.  

We constantly monitor all variables in the pickling process, including the acid concentration and the time in solution.

Once rinsed following our pickle process, the parts are clean and contaminant-free, allowing for them to be treated with a rust preventative coating for added corrosion resistance.

Non-oil and oil rust preventatives are available.

Heavy, light, and a dry-to-touch options of organic and inorganic rust preventatives or inhibitors are available. Also available to this process is an extra step of SPIN DRY to remove excess rust preventative from parts with threads.
