Welding over Picklex® 20 coating, compared to AWS or ASME Code Welding

Picklex® 20 provides much better welding than AWS/ASME code welding.

Welding without removing Mill scale.  Eliminates Hydrogen embrittlement (chances of Weld failure is almost Zero).               Zero Weld failure since 1998.    Acts as an Anti- Spatter.

Welding can be performed over Picklex® 20 coated metal surface after complete drying.
Performance/Benefits of welding through Picklex® 20 coating on Cold rolled steel/Stainless steel:
  • Picklex® 20 completely prepares the metal surface by removing mill oil/cutting fluid, flash rust and put a nano weldable conversion coating in One Step.
  • Increases weld strength considerably on Cold rolled and Stainless steel.
  • Does not cause hydrogen embrittlement and so the chance of weld failure is Zero, which means No Re-work, saving a lot of labor, time & cost. There has been zero welding failure since 1998
  • Acts as an Anti-spatter saving labor, time & cost
  • After Welding and removal of the weld scale, spraying Picklex® 20 on the welding area provides a very long-term indoor rust protection
  • Provides good adhesion of the welding area with the top coating

Performance/Benefits of welding through Picklex® 20 coating on Hot rolled steel with Mill Scale:

  • Picklex® 20 completely converts the mill scale to a conversion coating through which welding can be performed after complete drying (dried by Heat Gun). This eliminates removal of the mill scale before Welding.
  • Weld strength is still higher compared to the AWS or ASME code welding method (which is performed after removing mill scale).
  • Does not cause hydrogen embrittlement. The chances of weld failure is zero
  • Acts as an Anti-spatter
  • After welding and removal of the weld scale, spraying Picklex® 20 on the welding area provides a very long-term indoor rust protection before top coating
  • Provides good adhesion with the top coating
  • Saves a lot of labor, time & cost from removal of mill scale and weld spatters
