Stainless Steel Surface Treatment Expertise
Filler metal specialist voestalpine Böhler Welding took advantage of the podium of Schweißen & Schneiden 2017 to highlight its industry leading products for the cleaning, pickling and passivation of stainless steel surfaces and welds. This range of finishing chemicals compliments a globally unique portfolio of stainless welding consumables and comes with the support of over fifty years of expertise in surface treatment to prolong the life span of stainless steel equipment and constructions.
Böhler Welding presented its finishing chemicals under the weldCare umbrella name – a category of products that also covers personal protection equipment for use in joining, cladding and brazing. They are fully in-house produced by the company’s own ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified production facility in Malmö, Sweden.
Treatment with high quality finishing chemicals from Böhler Welding is an effective method to clean stainless steel, restore its protective chromium-oxide skin and prolong the life span of stainless steel constructions. It is applied after fabrication, transport or storage of stainless steel products, but also as a maintenance procedure for installations in service.
The Böhler Welding product range covers the most commonly applied methods – brush, spray and bath pickling – with products available for ferritic and austenitic stainless steel, the various grades of duplex stainless steel as well as nickel-base alloys.
Böhler Welding is world market leader in refined finishing chemicals with a reduced environmental impact. Its innovative BlueOneTM Pickling Paste 130 and RedOneTM Pickling Spray 240 are the international industry benchmark, enabling a reduction of toxic fumes by up to 80%.
