Acid Etching Metal with Hydrochloric Acid

Acid Etching Metal

Bondall’s Hydrochloric Acid can be used for the Acid Etching Metal

Acid Etching Metal is the process of cutting into a metal surface using hydrochloric acid. Metal etching is used for a variety of applications, such as an industrial manufacturing application, an art technique, and a application for identifying and branding property.

The Method of Acid Etching Metal

The normal method for Acid Etching Metal is to apply protection to the areas of a metal surface, either to the whole area or just to the areas that are needed to remain unaffected. The parts of the metal to be etched are then either left uncovered or the protected material is scratched off by using tools such as an etching needle. The metal surface is then dipped in hydrochloric acid that then eats away at the exposed areas of metal, creating the desired shape or print.

Chemical Milling is a form of industrial acid metal etching. Industrial uses include the fabrication of semiconductors, the printed circuit board industry, and by the aerospace industry in fashioning aircraft components.

Clay Pots from Sasak Pottery

Clay PotsThe Rinjani range of clay pots from Sasak Pottery are now available at Bunnings stores throughout Australia. Consisting of Cream and Black colours and available in 62cm, 60cm, and 40cm diameter sizes, these inspiring range of pots will enhance the look and feel of any outdoor area around the home.

The Sasak Story of Clay Pots

For many generations, the local Sasak craftswomen on the island of Lombok have made hand crafted pottery which represents one of the most ancient Indonesian craft traditions. Sourcing clay used for Sasak pottery is from hills up above the three main villages where the pottery is made. Every one of these villages has their own distinctive style when making clay pots, with a different process and a different motif used in their designs.

Since the early part of the 16th century the village women of Lombok have been producing clay pottery. In a tradition called “turun temurun”, their unique skills are continually passed on from mother to daughter and, despite the use of very simple tools, there is a remarkably high level of skill in their pottery. With no potter’s wheel being used, instead the maker herself moves around the object to press the clay into the desired shape whilst adding layers continually to the original piece of dough.

When the clay pots have finished being formed, they are fired in a simple outdoor kiln that is fired with wood straw and rice husks, which in turn gives each piece its own unique fire markings.

Acid Etching Concrete with Hydrochloric Acid

Acid Etching Concrete

Bondall’s Hydrochloric Acid can be used for the Acid Etching of Concrete

By utilising the process of Acid Etching, Hydrochloric Acid can be used to clean the surface of concrete to allow for coatings to be applied effectively. Acid etching can remove the weak, milky layer of cement dust, lime and fine sand that can rise to the surface with concrete that is over-wet, had poor curing or been over-troweled. It involves allowing the reaction of a diluted solution of hydrochloric acid to the concrete surface, then rinsing off with water.

The acid chemically reacts with the surface, and dissolves it, allowing it and other water-soluble contaminants to be washed away. Removing the top layer will allow coatings to firmly adhere to sound concrete giving a much longer life span.
