Callington Haven S-Weld Brite Wash is an acidic, biodegradable detergent designed for surface cleaning of stainless steel & carbon steel after fabrication and for in-situ cleaning of architectural stainless steel surfaces.
S-Weld Brite Wash will remove surface dust, soil, rust, rust and water stains, iron and organic contamination without affecting the surface finish of the stainless steel. It can also be used to remove surface corrosion and staining on handrails and other stainless steel surfaces. It is excellent for cleaning of machined carbon steel parts.
Callington Haven S-Weld Brite Wash is :
- readily miscible with water
- effectively removes organic soil, dirt and iron
- leaves a clean surface without affecting surface finish - removes corrosion products (rust), rust stain, oxides - aids surface passivation
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
General Surface Cleaning After Fabrication
Mix 1 part of Callington Haven S-Weld Brite Wash with 5 to 8 parts of water at room temperature. Spray onto surface by acid resistant spray pump. Some brushing of the surface will assist with removal of corrosion and difficult soils. The surface should be kept wet with the solution until the soil is gone. Rinse the surface; warm water is preferred.
Where the surface of handrails, stainless steel cladding or process plant and carbon steel
equipment shows visible signs of corrosion (rusting), S-Weld Brite Wash can be applied by:
Hand Wipe Application
Mix 1 part of S-Weld Brite Wash with 1 part of clean water. Wet surface with a sponge or rag and follow immediately by scrubbing with a stainless steel Scotch Brite type pad. Rinse with clean water once all traces of corrosion are removed.
Mix one part of S-Weld Brite Wash with 1 to 2 parts of clean water. Spray onto surface with an acid resistant spray pump. Where appropriate, scrub the surface with a Scotch Brite pad. For hard to use areas, use a high pressure spray containing a 10% solution of S-Weld Brite Wash.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water when all visible traces of corrosion have been removed.
1. If all traces of free iron on stainless surface are specified to be removed, follow up with a 2 to 4 hour treatment using
Callington Haven S-Weld Passivator passivating agent. S-Weld Passivator will generate a stronger and more resilient chrome oxide passive film to corrosion.
2. During stainless steel fabrication, all sandblasted and ground surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned using S-Weld Brite Wash to ensure removal of iron particles and dust.
S-Weld Brite Wash contains Phosphoric Acid.
