Online PR News – 09-July-2013 – Cabrera de Mar, Spain – Inside its range of products for hot-dip galvanizing, ANGEM Specialities supplies the product ADL 3P, a passivation process with Cr-III, which has been chosen as having the highest performance for corrosion inhibition and passivation of galvanized steel amongst all the alternatives to processes with Cr-VI.
A study funded by ATEG (Asociación Técnica Española de Galvanización), the passivation process ADL 3P supplied by ANGEM, has been compared to all the products available in the market. ADL 3P has reached the highest levels of protection and white rust inhibition in galvanized steel amongst all the analyzed processes.
With a percentage of inhibition about 90% and a high resistance to the appearance of white rust in stacking tests, ADL 3P is as totally comparable to Cr-VI-based processes.
After the inclusion of Cr-VI in the list of substances of very high concern (SVHC) of REACH, its sale end usage inside the EU is going to be severely limited. Therefore, all new generation passivation processes do not include such an element in its components.
The tests were done in industrial environment by CENIM (Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Metalúrgicas) a research center affiliated to CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas) in Spain. For the tests, tap water and standard industrial metrology systems were used, thus giving results very representative of the final outcome.
