Derustit SS-3 Stainless Steel Pickling Liquid

**Derustit SS-3 Liquid has a three week lead time**

Nothing Cleans Stainless Steel Better

Derustit SS-3 is a powerful, ready-to use cleaning solution formulated specifically for stainless steel. Use it to remove slag, scale, and tarnish on large surface areas. Derustit SS-3 is especially effective in the cleaning of light or heavy heat scale and tarnish that forms on and around weld beads.

For Stationary or Immersible Applications

Derustit SS-3 is available in liquid or paste formulations. Each is equally effective on large surface areas and weld beads.

It's Fast!

Restore a silvery look to treated areas in just minutes without sand blasting or grinding. Weld beads can be cleaned with Derustit SS-3 in just 2-30 minutes, depending on the weld.

It's Economical!

Nothing cleans stainless steel surfaces as economically as Derustit SS-3. One gallon will clean up to 1200 feet of weld bead.

Derustit SS-3 is ideal for industrial use:

  • Food & Beverage Processing Equipment
  • Medical Equipment
  • Chemical Processing Equipment
  • Sanitation
  • Tanks
  • Trucks
  • Turbines
  • Sculpture
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Dairy
  • Marine
  • Waste Water Treatment Plants

How To Use Derustit SS-3

1. Apply a thick layer of the Derustit SS-3 Paste using a acid resistant brush. Allow the paste to set for 15 minutes on the surface.
2. Remove loose scale with stainless steel wire or stiff nylon brush.
3. Rinse thoroughly with water.
4. Repeat process if necessary, depending on discoloration.

1. Using a plastic container, immerse the surface to be treated into a bath of Derustit SS-3 Liquid. Allow object to soak 2-15 minutes. Longer for very heavy scale.
2. Follow same steps as above for Paste.

Pickling and Passivation

Pickling: Complete removal of oxides, carbon, scale and other impurities from stainless steel.
Passivation: Regeneration of the protective surface to resist corrosion.

Derustit SS-3 Stainless Steel Cleaner - in liquid and paste form - is a carefully balanced formulation of effective pickling agents combined with special inhibitors.
