Metal Finishers

Antox Pickling & Passivation Products for U. S. Metal Finishers
Metal finishing companies offer pickling & passivation as primary services to fabricators throughout the United States. Metals, including 300-series Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Nickel, and Aluminum alloys require pickling & passivation and fabricators need these services frequently. Fabricators ship completed items for processing to meet their customer’s requirements. Carefully managed, heated pickling baths are the most common method for handling these jobs.

For most metal finishers, small quantity and single unit pickling jobs and rush orders from fabricators on tight schedules can be a problem area. Often, heating up a large pickling & passivation bath system for a small order or small quantity of items doesn’t make sense, or time constraints from customers complicate normal pickling & passivation schedules. Some metal finishers turn down jobs due to these issues.

Ambient Temperature Antox Pickling & Passivation Bath Products from QWP
For many metal finishers, maintaining a smaller scale, ambient temperature pickling bath capability can solve the problem of handling small quantity pickling & passivation jobs. Without interrupting normal operations, rush jobs, too, can often be handled with a smaller scale pickling bath system, using Antox Pickling Bath products from QWP.

Available in smaller quantities, these specially formulated pickling products from Antox, a world-class leader in metal finishing products and systems, make it simple for metal finishers to create pickling & passivation environments to handle individual items and small quantity orders from fabricators economically and efficiently.
