Picklex 20

Has anyone used Picklex 20 to protect stripped metal prior to priming and painting? Does it protect the metal well and for how long?

Anyother bare metal protection productions that you like please list them and why you like them.

Thanks

Picklex 20..couple of questions

Hi all,
After reading more about treating my bare metal I like several products. I have a couple of questions on Picklex 20. Can you paint and put filler over it or do you need a degreaser first?
Any other application recommendations would be appreciated!
Thanks, Walt

Anybody use Picklex 20 for metal prep/rust removal?

I read a few threads on here about Picklex 20, http://www.picklex20.com/index.html but non really answered my questions.

From all I read, the best way to protect against rust is to have clean metal and epoxy primer. For me, I've been doing my metal repair for years, and every time I cut into things, I find rust to be dealt with. But in a home garage, under bedrooms, I see no practical safe way to spray epoxy primer.

So I've been using Picklex 20 to hold me over until I'm done the metal work, and I can take the car somewhere to be epoxy primed.

I'd imagine Picklex 20 has to have some phosphoric acid in it, although I can find no list of ingredients, either on the web or on the bottle.

Now on this board, I read several Ospho threads, and I've had the bejesus scared out of me, that epoxy primer won't stick to my Picklexed car.

Anyone with any experience with Picklex 20, and primer adhesion?

No experience with the stuff, but I went to the web page and read a few pages into it. They claim it can be used as a primer, can be primed over, can be done in all kinds of temperatures, it has some claims that would be interesting to see if they are honest. Where's DB when you need him? Maybe we can get someone to try the stuff and give a testimony.

The person who told you that Epoxy primer cannot be applied over Picklex coated metal surface, either do not have any idea about the Picklex 20 product or have some other interest. Epoxy primer is one of the best primer which has been in use with Picklex 20 coating. Only thing you have to check that the primer should not be "self etching primer", which has acid in it, because it may react with the coating. Also, sanding or buffing the coating is not needed before priming or painting. Picklex 20 provides excellent bonding and also longer corrosion resistance (longer paint life).

Picklex 20 in one spraying/brushing application, removes the flash rust, provides a protective coating (conversion coating) and seals the coating, all at the same time making the metal surface rust/contamination free with zero oxidation and stops further oxidation for a long period of time when stored indoors (several years). As of now, over 5000 car restoring people & places have used Picklex 20 sucessfully for last 12 years.

Picklex 20 is a proprietary product and therefore only a small amount of phosphoric acid has been mentioned (because it has to be mentioned). No other ingredient in the product is hazardous or unsafe. The product basically is a water based, environmentall safe & non-hazardous product.

All claims which are made in the web site are accurate and has been in use by lot of companies, including Military fabricating companies who achieved excellent results.

Questions about this product is welcome. E-mail at ********.net

Oh Moderator...!

Not real sure about the tone of this last posting - seems a tad close to the "advertising" line

Moderator opinion/ruling please!

Picklex 20 can remove light mill oil. Any heavy oil or grease should be removed by some other means. Apply Picklex 20, remove excess chemical after a minute, air dry. After complete drying priming & painting can be done. Filler can be applied after buffing the coating or the filler can be applied after priming.

Welding can be done on the coating.

Picklex 20 coating will provide indoor rust protection for several years if kept away from contact with water.

Sad part of all this is the owner of the car with this expensive mess on his hands.

All of the snake oil rust "fixitupper" products are not suitable for any automotive use imho. Lots of brand names and fancy advertising are used to sell these snake oils. In the old west they shot snake oil salesmen.

Well, hopefully he has it all fixed....This thread is over 7 years old.....I guess the new member dragged it up, along with a couple of others. One of the mods merged them all together, that is why it reads like a big mess.....sort of like what this Picklex product might do..... ....I guess we are right back to square one on whether its good or not......
