S-Weld Clean utilises innovative Australian technology for the formulation of a
high adhesion stainless steel pickling gel. It is used to remove the black oxide
marks and heat tint left during welding of stainless steel. S-Weld Clean leaves a
clean professional finished stainless-steel weld area. It is suitable for use on
stainless steels, duplex steel and inconel alloys.

Directions for use



Clean the weld area carefully using a stainless-steel brush


Roll or shake the drum of S-Weld Clean if possible for 30 seconds prior to opening the container
to ensure a smooth consistency, especially if the product has not been used for a long time


After welding, ensure the area to be pickled has sufficient time to cool below 40°C


Apply the S-Weld Clean gel to the area to be pickled with the brush provided.


Application times may vary depending on ambient temperatures, the grade of stainless, surface
finish or the method of welding. On a hot rolled surface the pickling time may increase by 50%.
MIG welds may require longer pickling times than those obtained using covered electrodes. Allow
the pickling gel or solution sufficient time to react with the surface. With high ambient
temperatures or when longer pickling times are required, it may be necessary to repeat the
process. Do not allow the pickling agent to dry on the surface. Should the product dry on the
surface wash down, dry and repeat the process


To clean, rinse the surface with clean potable water. The best results are obtained by the use of
high pressure water jet or similar. Ensure the pickle residues are not left on the surface. If the
surface to be cleaned is in an environmentally sensitive area the bucket and rag method can be
employed. Using a bucket of clean potable water wash and wipe surface down with wet clean
rags. Repeat to ensure surface is clean and free of acids
