 Elimitint P&P Weld Tint Remover can help you protect workers and the environment 

Elimitint P&P weld tint remover’s innovative formulation contains no hydrofluoric acid, a revolutionary advancement for pickling and passivation methods that can help you protect workers and the environment. Moreover, Elimitint requires less rinse water due to its lower acid concentration and can treat dissimilar metals in a single assembly. Elimitint’s simple, easy application, combined with the elimination of application time restraints, helps fabricators structure the pickling and passivation process to meet their needs, rather than the other way around, significantly improving stainless steel fabrication productivity.
