New pickling tape simplifies treatment of aluminum

Application of pickling tape prior to the repair of damaged paint. The paint has been removed by mechanical abrasion and the pickling tape is used for pre-treatment of the metal surface. After removal of the tape and simple cleaning with a damp cloth, the surface is ready to receive a fresh coat of paint.

The paint has been removed by mechanical abrasion and the pickling tape is used for pre-treatment of the metal surface. After removal of the tape and simple cleaning with a damp cloth, the surface is ready to receive a fresh coat of paint.

New tape is safer than existing treatment methods because there is no rinsing stage and hence no need for complicated wastewater disposal.
