Note: The kit is sold in the proper mixing ratio, so that you can mix the total of the two units together to achieve the proper working solution. However, if you purchase a larger kit, and want to mix small batches at a time, then you would mix them as follows; i.e. eleven parts Unit 1 and one part Unit 2.

If the items to be treated are heavily contaminated, particularly with grease or oils, then they should be cleaned and/or degreased prior to immersion in Arcal Brill.

Immerse, or apply to work pieces in the proportionately mixed Brill solution for about 30 to 60 seconds, depending on the condition of the surface; remove the pieces and rinse thoroughly with running water.

The items may be neutralized afterwards using a mild alkli solution such as Arcal 163-A neutralizer.

To prevent future oxidation a fine coating such as Arcal Copper Protect may be used.
