If you work in a steel plant or know someone who does, you might have heard of ammonium chloride. But what is ammonium chloride, and how is it used in galvanizing steel?
Ammonium chloride is an inorganic compound with the formula NH4Cl and a white crystalline salt highly soluble in water. In galvanization, ammonium chloride is a primary component in the cleaning process. But ammonium chloride is also used in just about everything from toothpaste to hair gel.
Here at Zaclon, we sell three forms of ammonium chloride used for various applications during the galvanization of steel.
This form of ammonium chloride is more significant and has no additional chemical mixed in the solution. This form of ammonium chloride is used for adjusting the flux tank if more cleaning power is needed.
Another form of ammonium chloride we sell is called ammonium chloride G. This form of ammonium chloride is small, about the size of a tablet of aspirin. No additives are added to this solution, and it helps keeps things under control.
Our final form of ammonium chloride is used for adjustment purposes in the pre-flux baths. This solution comes in solid states and is used in top-flux applications like wires and fences.
The most significant advantage to these products is not having to worry about contaminating your tanks. Our fines are decades in the making which helps keep your ammonium chloride bags from turning into 50-pound blocks.
Our diverse product offering helps customers across various industries realize their goals of superior quality and efficiency.
