What is Stainless Steel & Metal Pickling?

At Electro-Max, we offer the best form of stainless steel and metals pickling services the industry has to offer. Our metal pickling process involves several steps to pretreat the weld prior to actually performing the pickling process. This pretreating of the weld removes any residue, foreign substances, markings, dyes, rust, grease, or oil. Pre-cleaning is not required for all applications but is highly recommended for most as etching promotes surface adhesion on the metal.
