Iron Phosphates Detergent

Steam, Pressure Spray, and Immersion Detergent Iron Phosphate or Aluminum and Ferrous Metals. Concentrated steam and high temperature spray wand cleaner and iron phosphate. Aluminium activated. ChemWorld STM Xtrem is:
  • A blend of buffered phosphates, water conditioners, and non-heavy metal coating accelerators in combination with a high level of controlled foaming detergents in a convenient liquid form.
  • pH balanced so that little or no pH adjustment is required.
  • Designed for use in industrial immersion, non-recirculating spray, steam phosphatizing systems, or by hand wipe.
  • Produces an iridescent blue coating on ferrous components which provides improved paint adhesion and corrosion resistance for the finish.
  • Produces a light coating and etch on aluminum, zinc, and galvanized surfaces.
  • ChemWorld STM Xtrem meets or exceeds TTC-490D, Type II military specification by providing an iron phosphate coating in the range of 35 to 80 mgs/ft2.
  • Concentration: Immersion: 1 to 4% by volume.
  • Steam / Pressure Spray: 0.5 - 2% by volume.
  • Hand Wipe: 2% by volume.

  • Target Operating pH: 4.4 - 4.9
  • Contact Time: As available.
For best results, ChemWorld STM Xtrem should be followed by a water rinse, but the ChemWorld STM Xtrem was specifically formulated to accept paint without being rinsed.

Frequently Asked Questions
We are looking for a cleaning product to clean and prep carbon steel 10” channel and mild steel for painting. We are dealing with scale and oils from the steel manufacturing process and would prefer a one step chemical.
A single step iron phosphate will do the trick on the oils and prep the metal for paint but the scale may or may not be removed. It really depends on the severity of the scale. Most steel will do fine with a detergent iron phosphate alone. Use our ChemWorld STM Xtrem at 2%BV with water. Make down with HOT water in a garden sprayer. It's important to spray it in a temperature controlled space (not outside in freezing weather).

Better results will be obtained if the metal is cleaned and descaled, then rinsed, prior to the iron phosphate treatment. Pre-cleaning and descaling with Rust Citric at 5%BV followed by a rinse will do well when it comes to removing scale and oil.

What is the shelf life of the STM XTREM?
The shelf life of the product in the original container is 3 years.
Would a Hudson sprayer work for application? Or do you recommend a pressure washer with a chemical reservoir?
If you use a Hudson sprayer, then the part must be clean (and/or sandblasted) prior. We would use the STM XTREM at 3%BV in water. Let it sit for 5-minutes, then rinse with water.
