Welcome to Vision Pickling
9341 State Route 23, Waterman IL


Since inception, Vision Pickling & Processing has taken great pride in going the extra mile to help our Customers.  Our one-stop shop offers tremendous transportation and overhead cost savings.  Pickling, saw cutting, sequencing, packaging, and many different inventory options under one roof. In addition, we are able to accomodate customer's value added service requests, to further prepare material for final delivery to the end user. If machining is needed, Vision Pickling does not provide that service, but there is a machine shop located within the same complex.

About Pickling

Pickling is the chemical removal of rust & scale. Pickling provides a cleaner and smoother surface for superior paint finish, weldability, and longevity. Steel free of rust, scale, oil, and grease will ensure superior surface application and extended tool life.

Why Batch Pickling?

  • A cleaner and smoother surface than shot blasting, to provide a better quality paint application and appearance.
  • Superior surface application for E-Coat and Powder Coat Paint Systems.
  • Greater marketability for hot roll; we pickle flats, tubing, structurals, sheets, plates, and various fabricated parts.
  • Clean surface cosmetic consistency; scale and rust free base metal ready for paint, fabrication, plating, etc.
  • Secondary (salvage) steel due to rust can now be reclaimed to near-prime condition.
  • No flashing or "hot spots" when using our SRP (Sythentic Rust Preventative) product for better weldability.
  • Extended tool life due to scale and rust free material, and better handling due to cleaned and oiled surface.
  • Removes laser scale from cut parts.
