Cleaners and picklers

Cleaners and picklers

Metavate recognise that it isn’t all about pretreating metal prior to painting! Therefore we also offer a wide range of cleaners which can be manually applied or sprayed on metal (painted or not painted), plastic, glass, ceramics etc. In keeping with our green and hassle-free ethos we offer our SACHE range which effectively cleans without the need for rinsing. SACHE also contains specialist corrosion-inhibitors which protects parts from rusting for several hours after cleaning.

Have an issue with white rust? Metavate offers a pickling product which effectively removes oxides from metal surfaces whilst also passivating prior to coating. Treatment time is between 5 and 15 minutes and removes all trace of oxides

Have a look at the MSDS sheets for more information.


We've calculated that in a year since changing over from our old conventional phosphating system, we've saved nearly £70k in chemical costs and labour

It sounded too good to be true but long term trials have proved the process works.

It’s the only process we’ve found that allows us to store cast steel and iron products without the worry of going rusty before assembly / painted.

We’ve seen lots of benefits - resolved storage issues, reduced utility costs, reduced water usage, carbon footprint AND our production time.
