Degreasing and phosphating solution
FS 10 solution has been designed to dissolve oils and greases on metal surfaces, in particular, stainless steel and iron. Removal of these deposits is essential for the success of the subsequent treatments: heat, galvanic and chemical treatments in general. To assess whether cleaning was successful, you can use Clean Test (PC01506) to determine the surface tension according to DIN 53364/ISO8296.
Instructions for use
FS 10 solution is sold as a concentrate to be diluted with water at a volume ratio of 1:2 to 1:5 depending on the amount of pollutants to be removed. Dilute by adding the concentrate to the water, mixing carefully.
Application is normally by immersion in PP/PVC tanks or by spraying at room temperature; you can however also work at a temperature of up to 40°C, which allows accelerating the action of the product [it is advisable to use PTFE (Teflon) heating elements to heat the solution].
The treatment times depend on the level of dirt on the surfaces to be treated and vary from 30 seconds to 15 minutes.
After pickling the pieces, give them another good wash at high pressure. If degreasing is the final phase, additional washing with demineralised water allows obtaining an excellent result.
Precautions for use
Use appropriate PPE and follow the instructions on the safety data sheet.
The washing water is acidic and may therefore not be drained directly, but has to be neutralised and decanted.
Industrial wastewater may be drained only after authorisation by the competent authorities. Delmet can supply manual or automatic equipment for this type of treatment.
