CHLOR*RID – Safe and Reliable Removal of Soluble Salt Contamination
Soluble salts, like chlorides, sulfates and nitrates, are found on surfaces everywhere. These soluble salts pull moisture from the air, causing protective coatings to fail. They can also be the cause of degradation of the substrate. Left unchecked, the salt contamination can corrode into deep pockets, making decontamination even more important and challenging. Lost productivity from protective coating failures is costly and can be hazardous.
Alternative methods are not as cost effective. Abrasive blasting often requires repeated blasting. Some abrasives contain salts and actually deposit trace amounts of soluble salts on the surfaces. Other methods require heat or use of hazardous chemicals. Some methods may leave residues that interfere with the adhesion of the protective coating, thus contributing to coating failure.
Chlor-rid is a salt removal product that is used in sandblasting and coatings industry to remove salts from natural or chemical reactions. The removal of salt is very important when it comes to the coating bond. Chlorrid is the easiest and most economical way to remove soluble salt contaminants. The protective coating industry and corrosion engineers are now more aware of the damage soluble salt contaminants cause than ever before. Chlor*rid will not interfere with the adhesion of protective coatings. When your specification requirements require consistent, safe and reliable removal of soluble salt contamination use Chlorrid.
Using Chlorrid during coating procedures reduces costly coating failures and corrosion rates. Chlorrid removes chlorides and sulfates from contaminated surfaces in a simple dilution with any potable water source. Chlorrid is biodegradable, non-flammable and contains no volatile organic compounds. Laboratory ad field tests confirm that chlorrid is effective for removing chlorides and sulfates from industrial surfaces.
Salt Removal Questions?
Q: If salts are soluble, why doesn’t water remove them?
A: Salts are electrochemically driven to the substrate and are attached with greater strength than the forces applied to remove them.
Q: Is Chlor*rid a economical way to remove salts?
A: Alternative methods are not as cost effective to remove salts. Sandblasting often requires blasting. Some abrasives contain salts and actually deposit trace amounts of soluble salts on the surfaces.
Q: Is heat a good way to remove salts?
A: Other methods require heat or use of hazardous chemicals. Some methods may leave residues that interfere with the adhesion of the protective coating thus contributing to coating failure.
Q: Has Chlorrid been tested by coating manufactures?
A: Yes Wasser High-Tech Coatins, Tnemec Company, Advanced Polymer Sciences, and Wisconsin Protective Coatings have tested Chlorrid with their coatings and found that it does not interfere with the adhesion of their coatings.
Q: Will Chlor-rid stop flash rusting?
A: Chlo-rid is for the removal of salts. To stop flash rusting you would want to use Hold-Blast.
Q: Do you need to be certified to use Chlorrid?
A: The use of Chlorrid to remove salts does not pose a health concern and certification is not required for use.
