ABLE INOX GEL
is fast acting, maximum strength stainless steel pickling gel suitable for passivating and weld cleaning on most grades of Stainless Steel (SS316, SS304 etc.) without the need for a Poisons License. Contains an anti-gassing agent for your added safety. NO LICENCE REQUIRED
Use as received and do not dilute or mix with other chemicals. The pickling process should take between 30 to 90 minutes depending on temperature & surface to be treated. Application should ideally be performed indoors in well ventilated area at room temperature. For outdoor work, the stainless steel to be pickled must be shielded from direct sunlight and rain.
To use simply apply a thin to medium film with an acid resistant brush (ideally) or with a roller with splash guard (not as safe as brush method because of splatter).
Coverage is approximately 120 meters of weld length per 1L or 6m2per litre of gel.
Once applied the pickling gel will usually work within 60 – 240 minutes. The pickling time varies according to the prevailing temperature, type of steel and weld. Many boilermakers apply and leave over night to work.
Only apply the pickling gel to surfaces that are free of oil or other contamination and if working temperature is between +3 to +40ºC (product can “gas off” in high temperatures, conversely in low temperature the chemical reaction can be slowed or stopped). Once the product has worked the surface should be triple rinsed using copious amounts of high pressure water.
