HoldTight 102 is an additive that prevents flash rusting of wet abrasive and water-blasted iron and steel
surfaces and of dry-blasted surfaces in a pressurized washdown. In addition, it also removes chlorides and other salts
and contaminants very effectively. It is approved by most major coating suppliers for use with most coatings:
contact HoldTight Solutions Inc., for details and references. Additionally, HoldTight 102 completely removes all salts, resulting in no conductivity. It also removes abrasives and debris from the surface’s profile providing a better surface area to bond with coating. Finally, because HoldTight 102 leaves a clean, rust-free surface for up to 72 hours, large areas of structures can be blasted and cleaned completely before coating application, instead of having to be coated immediately after blasting every day.
HoldTight 102 Properties:
- Soluble in water
- Non-flammable. With no rain, temperature above 40°F, rusting will be prevented for about 48 hours, often longer
- Raises the pH of blasting water to help compensate for acidic sand
- Leaves no residue
- Surface salts, including chlorides, undetectable after use
- Product chemistry approved by the FDA for food grade service under 21
For use with vapor blasting systems.
