Description

5.1.1. Pickling
When stainless steel is welded or heated, the chromium level on the top layers significantly decreases which also makes stainless steel vulnerable to corrosion. In order to remove this damaged layer pickling is an option which is generally a solution of nitric and hydrofluoric acids.
