anti-spatter agent



  1. A chemical in the form of aerosol, liquid, or paste used to protect workpieces, tables, jigs and fixtures from weld spatter buildup. The agent forms a barrier that makes spatter easy to remove after welding. The ideal anti-spatter agent is a non-toxic formula that is easy to remove; doesn’t contaminate the weld seam; doesn’t interfere with downstream processes such as priming, painting or galvanizing; and works well on a variety of materials.
