RBP Introduces new heavy metal precipitant

RBP Chemical Technology has introduced a new heavy metal precipitant formulated to remove metals from wastewater streams. New RBP MetalTreat 529 is particularly useful in treating wastewater from plating operations, and provides nearly complete precipitation of metals, producing a compact, highly insoluble, sludge cake even in the presence of other chelating or sequestering agents.
