Chemicals for Removing SS Weld Tint, Mild Steel Rust and Paint

Praxair's ProStar® “Smart” Chemicals solve some every day challenges surrounding the use of metals. These chemicals act fast and make the treatment, protection and restoration of metals easier without damage to substrates. Because they are biodegradable, they can help you keep your workers safe while reducing the impact of your metal treatment processes on the environment.

Using “Smart” technology, these chemicals enable targeting of specific problems such as chromium oxide, rust or iron oxide or the bond between paint or coatings and their substrate. Once these targeted items are depleted or broken down ProStar “Smart” Chemicals stop reacting and can be left on indefinitely without concerns of damage to substrates.

Praxair's ProStar "Smart" Chemicals allow you to:

  • Pickle and passivate stainless steel in one step, without the use of hydrofluoric acid.
  • Remove rust without damage to substrates or coatings and protect metal during storage and shipping.
  • Remove paint and industrial coatings in a semi-solid form which helps make disposal easier.
