For treatment of metal surface Corrosion
IBIT® is added to inorganic acid (hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and sulfamic acid) or organic acid (citric acid and hydroxyacetic acid) which is used for acid cleaning to remove scales and water stains formed on the surface of steel equipment. Power plant boiler,
Paper mill,

Seawater desalination plant,
Chemical plant

(Alumina production plant)

IBIT® is added into pickling liquid of hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid which is for removing scales formed on the surface of steel sheet during heat processing or heat treatment or for eliminating rust generated during storage or transport. Steel mill (blast furnace, electric furnace, etc.),
Secondary processing of steel (wire extending, pipe drawing, galvanizing, etc),
Stainless steel manufacturer
Antirust agent IBIT® prevents tarnish (rust) on steel products from occurring in rinsing operations after acid pickling. IBIT® is added to the rinse solution. Steel mill,
