|Application area:||COLD BURNISHING - BLACKENING of stainless steel, corrosion protection|
|Application:||The solution supplied ready for use is to be filled into a resistant container made of GRP, HDPE or PP.|
|Degreasing and inserting the parts:||The parts to be blackened must be degreased before cold burnishing. In the simplest case, this can be done by washing with alcohol.|
|Blackening effect:||Thorough degreasing of the parts is a prerequisite for uniform blackening. Depending on the material, blackening occurs quickly. If the workpiece remains too long in the blackening solution, loose oxides accumulate on the surface, which must be removed after the process (expediently with a scrubber brush, or similar). If the blackening has not become sufficient, the burnishing process can be repeated after the material has been cleaned. It has turned out that more than two burnishing passes hardly show any significant improvement. If an irregular coloration can be seen after burnishing, this is an indication of insufficient degreasing.|
After removing the loose oxides, which should be expediently carried out in a neutralization bath with the product NEUTRASOL – Concentrate, Cat. No. 875, the workpiece should be dried and preserved.
Regular tap water together with our NEUTRASOL can be used to prepare the bath. The pH value must be checked constantly and should not fall below pH-10, otherwise the workpieces will start to rust.
Indicator paper is used for checking.
EO post-treatment fluid, Cat. No.: 0871, is a temporarily effective, preservative metal protection for application after use of “Nigrit VA-Extra”. Corrosion is always undesirable, therefore the metal surface should be treated briefly with this fluid (thin application) after each use. The water-displacing additives reliably prevent contact between the metal surface and remaining moisture.
No workpieces should be left in the burnishing bath or remain in it too long, otherwise the burnishing agent will decompose and become unusable. When processing on a large scale, an exhaust system is required in any case, as combustible hydrogen gas can be formed by the decomposition of metal.
