Sandvik Formula Green is an effective multipurpose pickling paste, virtually free from formation of toxic nitric gases, used for post-weld treatment of stainless steel welds. Stainless steels are pickled in order to refurbish the weld's surface finish by removing welding oxide, heat tint or scale formed during fabrication.

Compared with conventional pickling pastes, Sandvik Formula Green gives 85% less discharge of dangerous nitrate and nitrite ions to waste water. This pickling paste releases 80–85% less toxic, nitric fumes during the pickling process and is therefore more operator friendly than other pickling pastes that generate fairly evil-smelling nitrous compounds.

Sandvik Formula Green is rapid and economical to use, as only a thin film of the pickling paste is required for a perfect result. The pickling paste has excellent adhesion and can be applied on vertical surfaces and ceilings without any risk of running or drying.
