How To Deal With Rust In Stainless Steel Wire Cloth?
There are some occasions that the stainless steel wire cloth is rusted,if we purchase new one,it will cost most.This article will mainly introduce how to deal with rust in stainless steel wire cloth.
1. Chemical methods
The usage of a pickling paste or spray to assist the re-passivation of the corroded part to form a chromium oxide film restores its resistance to corrosion. After pickling, it is important to flush properly with water to remove all contaminants and acid residues on the stainless steel wire cloth. After everything is processed, it is polished again with a polishing device and closed with a polishing wax. For those with slight rust on the spot, a 1:1 mixture of petrol and oil can be used to wipe off rust with a clean rag.
2. Mechanical method
Generally speaking, the mechanical method includes blast cleaning, shot blasting with glass or ceramic particles, annihilation, brushing and polishing. Using mechanical methods can possible wipe off the contamination caused by previously removed materials, polishing materials or annihilation materials. All kinds of pollution, especially foreign iron particles, can be a source of corrosion, especially in humid environments. Therefore, the mechanical cleaning surface should preferably be cleaned in a dry condition. The mechanical method can only clean the surface and cannot change the corrosion resistance of the material itself. It is therefore recommended to re-polish with a polishing machine after mechanical cleaning and close it with a polishing wax.
Hope this article can help everyone deal with stainless steel wire cloth corrosion problems and reduce losses.
