Avesta 240 - Spray Pickle Acid (Moderate Strength)

This is a less aggressive alternative to its close relative the Avesta 204 gel. Ideal for use on sheet stainless steel which tends to be sensitive to staining. Suitable for all 300 series grades of stainless steel.

This is a full blown pickling product highly visible due to its 'post office red' colour.

Owing to an unusual additive, the surface finish following the use of this product is that of a bright shiny finish particularly along the welds. The superior adhesiveness of this new gel, which is less agressive than the Gel 204, contributes to lower consumption, making it more economical.
