The Cost of Hidden Salt Contamination

The protective coating industry and corrosion engineers are more aware than ever before of the damage that can be caused by salt contamination.

Soluble salts, like chlorides and sulfates, are found on surfaces everywhere. These salts pull moisture from the air, causing protective coatings to fail. They can also be the cause at degradation of the substrate. Left unchecked, the surface contamination can corrode into deep pockets, making decontamination even more important and challenging. Lost productivity from protective coating failures are costly, and the failures can he hazardous.

Salt Contamination Removal by CHLOR*RID

CHLOR*RID is a unique, patented, organic bonding chemistry which aids in the removal of chlorides, sulfates and surface reacted salts. It removes these in a simple dilution with any potable water source.

CHLOR-RID is the easiest and most economical way to remove soluble salt contaminants with any method -- high-pressure washing, wet abrasive blasting, or hand-cleaning. CHOR*RID is biodegradable, non-flammable, and contains no volatile organic compounds.

Using CHLOR*RID during coating procedures reduces costly coating failures and corrosion rates -- simply, safely and economically. Laboratory and field tests confirm that it is effective on most industrial surfaces, including steel, foam, concrete and plastics. It has been used by private industry, for federal and state highway coating and cleaning projects, to wash dams, tanks, bridges and machinery, even in a microbiological lab.

Alternative methods are not as cost effective. Abrasive blasting often requires repeated blasting. Some abrasives contain salts and actually deposit trace amounts of soluble salts on surfaces. Other methods require heat or use of hazardous chemicals. Some methods may leave residues that interfere with the adhesion of the protective coating, thus contributing to coating failure.

If salts are soluble, why doesn't water remove them? Because they are electrochemically driven to the substrate and are attached with greater strength than the forces applied to remove them.
