With Antox®, we offer an extensive portfolio of pickling products for the surface treatment of stainless steels. Our innovative and strong chemical processes create a scale-free surface while at the same time improving the chemical resistance of your stainless steel substrates.
Nowadays, stainless steels can be found in all walks of life. They are increasingly being used for visible parts such as façades, windows, doors and kitchens. Their excellent corrosion resistance is based on a passive layer – a chrome oxide layer that forms spontaneously provided the chrome content of the stainless steel is higher than 12 %. A metallically clean, smooth surface is one of the prerequisite for formation of a protective passive layer.
