HoldTight Solutions pioneered the concept of low-cost, easy-toachieve, and easy-to-measure contaminant-free surface preparation. Our HoldTight®102 salt remover and flash rush inhibitor prevents flash rust simply by removing surface contaminants. If there is NO FLASH RUST, there are NO CONTAMINANTS. Any "stuff" on the surface — chlorides, sulfates, nitrates, phosphates, shattered pieces of rust, abrasive, paint, or any other debris — will pull water to the surface and cause flash rust. And if you paint over any such stuff, sooner or later, it will pull moisture through the coating and cause coating failure. No flash rust = a clean surface. In other words, you know it when you see it! You don't need to use cumbersome, expensive, and applicator-sensitive field tests to prove it. This is a revolutionary old concept: make it simple and it works better. "102" is used in conjunction with dry-blasting, wet-abrasive blasting, and water-jetting ("UHP") blasting. It evaporates rapidly, lifting off moisture as it does, and leaves no residue. 102 is approved by most coating manufacturers for most coatings.
