Stain Reducing Lime Additive for Improved Adhesion and Coating Weight - Freiborne Industries, Inc Stain Reducing Lime Additive for Improved Adhesion and Coating Weight - Freiborne Industries, Inc

Product Families: , Limelite 4
   

Lime bath additive designed to improve the adhesion, lubricity, and uniformity of lime coatings. Limelite 4 reduces staining of the lime coating caused by improper rinsing or oxidation, prevents growth of large and coarse lime crystals/particles, and tends to increase the coating weight obtained per dip. If you’re looking for that nice snow-white appearance, this is the product!

LIMELITE 4 is a lime bath additive designed to improve the adhesion of lime coatings. It also reduces staining of the lime coating caused by improper rinsing or oxidation and tends to increase the coating weight obtained per dip.

LIMELITE 4 can be used at concentrations of 3% to 6% the weight of lime in the bath to achieve the desired coating properties. Excessive usage of LIMELITE 4 can lead to heavy lime coatings that do not properly adhere.

Add 3 to 6 pounds of LIMELITE 4 for every 100 pounds of lime added to the bath.

Lime bath concentration is typically determined via titration. Freiborne has methods available for determining the concentration of lime in the bath if you do not already have a reliable procedure.

Required addition of LIMELITE 4 for initial tank buildup in pounds:

(Bath Volume in gallons) x (% Lime) x (LIMELITE 4 target %) / 1200 = lbs LIMELITE 4 Required

Example: A 5000 gallon lime bath at a 6% weight per volume lime with a target LIMELITE 4 concentration on 3% of the lime in the bath would be:

5000 x 6 x 3 / 1200 = 75 lbs LIMELITE 4 Required

Add LIMELITE 4, at a pre-determined concentration (3% to 6%), with every replenishing addition of lime. No testing should be required.
