Pickling is a process that cleans the surface of metal after it is formed. An acid is used to clean the metal, this acid is known as pickling liquor. The pickling process starts with a rinse of a special solution to remove debris and dirt from the metal. After the rinse, the metal is placed in a pickle liquor bath. This acid will remove any impurities on the metal. Once the time limit is reached the metal is removed from the bath. Also, a final rinse is then given to the metal.
