K-2 Paste is used to clean weld seams and the areas surrounding the welds. AREA COVERED: K-2 Paste form covers 90-100 meters of weld seams with 1kg. Of chemical. APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR K-2 PASTE Add 50gms of SI. 56 Degreaser to 1 ltr. Of water (5% w/v.). Apply solution on the surface for 10-15minutes & then wash thoroughly and allow the surface to air dry. K-2 Paste is to be applied on the weld seams and surrounding area with a brush. Leave the K-2 Paste on the weld seams for 30-45 minutes depending on the thickness of the oxide scale. Brush the surface with a plastic bristled brush and then wash surface thoroughly with high pressure water and allow the surface to air dry. Next apply K-2 Passivation solution and leave it for 20-25minutes. Finally clean the surface thoroughly with demineralised water and dry. Note: Chloride content in rinse water should be less than 50ppm. Shake the products well before use. Do not apply the products on the SS Surface under direct sunlight. K-2 Passivation is a must after every pickling process.
K-2 Spray is used to clean large fabricated equipment of Stainless steel e.g. Vessels equipment, internals & external of pipes by a pressurized spray bottle or pump. AREA COVERED K-2 Spray form covers 40-50 sq.ft. of an area with 1kg. of the chemical. APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR K-2 SPRAY Add 50gms of SI. 56 Degreaser to 1 ltr. Of water (5% w/v.). Apply solution on the surface for 10-15minutes & then wash thoroughly and allow the surface to dry. K-2 Spray is to be sprayed on the S.S. Surface with a pressurized plastic spray bottle or spray pump. After spraying leave it for 30-60 minutes then scrub the surface with a plastic bristled brush. Then wash the surface thoroughly with high-pressure water and allow the surface to dry. Next, apply K-2 Passivation solution and leave it for 20-25minutes. Finally rinse the surface thoroughly with demineralized water and dry.
K-2 Dip is used to clean complicated items, like the internals of pipelines by circulatory systems. It is also used to clean wire rolls internal recessed areas of machinery and heavy machinery by dipping into a large tank containing K-2 Dip by means of a chain pulley. AREA COVERED K-2 DIP form covers 40-50 sq.ft. of an area with 1kg. of the chemical. APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR K-2 DIP Apply liquid SI.56 degreaser solution on the surface for 5-10 minutes or immerse the item into the degreasing tank for 10 minutes then wash the surface thoroughly with high-pressure water and allow the surface to dry. Immerse the equipment into the dip tank containing K-2 Dip. Leave it for 5-6 minutes. (Depending on scale on S.S. Surface) Restore the passive layer on Stainless Steel surfaces that has been damaged during fabrication or usage. Dip the equipment again into the K-2 Passivating Solution for 30 minutes. Finally wash the equipment thoroughly with demineralized water and dry.
K-2 Passivation process is a must and should be followed after every pickling process. It protects and avoids the stainless steel surfaces from further corrosion and contamination. This treatment strengthens the passive layer. The treatment is more important after mechanical cleaning and operations involving a risk of iron contamination since the acid also remove iron impurities from the surface. Consequently, the method could also be referred to as decontamination. As after every acid treatment, rinsing with water is vital. This operation instantly Passivate the stainless steel surface. FEATURES: Passivation is a must after every pickling process. It even prevents water staining caused by poor rinsing of water. Passivation can be done after mechanical treatments such as grinding, brushing, blasting etc. Restore the passive layer on Stainless Steel surfaces that has been damaged during fabrication or usage. APPLICATIONS: All Stainless steel grades of 304, 308, 310, 316, 316L grades, 400 duplex and super duplex.

Benefits : Visual Inspection Becomes Easy – Green Colored Product Increased Productivity – Single Step Process , Reduction in MANHOURS Reduced FUMES – Reduced Pollution , Better Environment Protection TYPICAL APPLICATION PROCEDURE K-2 TECHNXT PASTE Apply K-2 TECHNXT Paste on oil and grease free , dry stainless steel surface with plastic brush and leave it for 30–60 minutes. Wash the surface with Demineralised water using a High Pressure water Jet machine. K-2 TECHNXT SPRAY Apply K-2 TECHNXT Spray on oil and grease free , dry stainless steel Surface with a Spray Bottle/Gun and leave it for 30 – 60 minutes. Wash the surface with Demineralised water using a high pressure water jet machine. It is well known that the top protective chromium oxide layer on Stainless Steel surface do get damaged during various fabrication process i.e. Mechanical treatment, Welding, Annealing, Grinding etc. Post- fabrication conventionally a two step process i.e. Pickling followed by Passivation is carried out to restore the passive layer. (Chrome oxide layer) K-2 TECHNXT IS AN UNIQUE CUSTOMISED FORMULATED PRODUCT FOR ACHIEVING PICKLING & PASSIVATION IN SINGLE STEP. K-2 TechNXT is available in GEL (Paste), SEMI GEL (Spray) and LIQUID (Dip) Form. NOTE: Demineralised water to be used for washing. Shake the bottle well before use. Do not apply the chemical under direct sunlight. Incase of oil and grease on the surface remove it with our SI-56 Degreasing Powder. We offer all safety products required during Pickling & Passivation Process. Product Confirms to ASTM A-967
