Technical Data

Mirapic ME-811

A water-soluble, dry powder containing acid salts with the addition of nitric acid to process Zamak-3 zinc die castings (Mix 1) and high silicon aluminum (Mix 2). Both treatments result in a leveled and fine-grained activated surface for post-seeding chemical or electroplating operations.

Technical Data

Mirapic ME-815

A water-soluble, dry powder containing acid salts. Mirapic ME-815 is added to sulfuric acid to deoxidize and activate copper and copper alloys.  Contains no phosphate, fluorides, chromate, ammonia, nitrate, or chloride.  Will restore copper appearance on copper alloys, enhance the appearance of brass alloys that are dezinced at the surface, and be used as a chromate-free deoxidizer on certain aluminum alloys.

Technical Data

Mirapic ME-810

A water-soluble, dry powder containing fluoride-bearing salts, which can be used to replace hazardous hydrofluoric acid. (1 oz. per gal. in water with the addition of sulfuric, nitric, or hydrochloric acid is equivalent to 1% by volume of 60% hydrofluoric acid).

Technical Data

Miraclean SS Etch

A liquid acidic compound designed to etch and condition stainless steel surfaces prior to brazing, rubberizing, or resin coatings.  Is stabilized to deliver a uniform and specific etch rate over a long period of time.

Technical Data

Acid Salts

Acid Salt 829

A dry powder containing acid salts and surface active agents.  For use with water on all metal as a replacement for mineral acids.

Technical Data

Acid Salt 839

A dry powder containing acid salts and surface active agents.  For use with water on all metal as a replacement for mineral acids.

Technical Data

Mirapic AS-839L

A liquid version of Acid Salt 839. It is a blend of acid salts and surfactants.  Used for activating steel, copper alloys, and zinc.  Unlike conventional mineral acids, dilution with water products produces less heat.  Normal precautions when working with mineral acids should be observed.

Technical Data

Activator 34

A dry powder containing acid salts and surface active agents. Activator 34 is for use with water on all metal as a replacement for mineral acids. Activator 34 is very effective on zinc die cast alloys, tin, lead, leaded brass, bismuth alloys, white metals, and beryllium copper.
