Plastics for pickling committee (PPC)

The overall aim of the committee is to build up knowledge to achieve a reliable and safe use of plastic materials in process equipment in steel works where acids such as nitric-, hydrofluoric-, hydrochloric- and sulphuricacid is used.
This is achieved by a close cooperation between supplier/manufacturers of plastic process-equipment/material and end users such as steel works and construction companies. The PPC-committee serves as a forum to achieve these aims and to effectively spread the results obtained to the committee members.
