Usage and Dilution Instructions

For stripping metal oxides from parts in soak tanks or ultrasonic cleaning applications, use 9 ounces per gallon of water (7% solutions). Concentrations higher than 7% will not work more efficiently. We recommend the use of a quality ultrasonic unit for highest efficiency. Rust and scale can normally be removed in 30 seconds to 2 minutes. The same concentrations may be used for passivation of stainless steel.
