Acid Inhibitor, commonly known as Acid Corrosion Inhibitors, is a product that have been specially designed to provide protection to base metals against corrosive actions of strong acidic substances.
These chemical additives are applied by dip, spray or other coating methods to help in the protection of metal components and equipment from the corrosive action of a direct contact or environmental acid. These inhibitors are used to alleviate the corrosive attack on metallic elements. Though the selection of these inhibitors depend mainly upon three features –
a) Its efficiency to inhibit the substrate material
b) Its economic availability
c) Its environmental side effects
