3M™ Acid Mist Suppressant is a fluorochemical additive that provides outstanding sulfuric acid mist suppression in the copper electrowinning tankhouse without the formation of a stable foam blanket at the surface of the electrowinning cell. Acid mist levels can be reduced significantly when 3M™ Acid Mist Suppressant is used alone or in conjunction with mechanical barriers, such as polypropylene macrospheres, with no adverse effects to either the solvent extraction or electrowinning process.
