This article summarizes a study about Picklex R, a proprietary formulation claimed to be an alternative to conventional metal surface pretreatments. EPA and Battelle researchers developed a laboratory program to compare the product with conventional metal pretreatment processes.

This was done by using steel and aluminum panels and by measuring product coating properties, process operability, and costs.
