7 Process requirements
7.1 Process conditions
7.1.1 Toolings

Toolings, fixturings, and metal tooling masking must be protected from the corrosion and/or free from

corrosion or another deterioration detrimental to the treatment during their use.

Design of the toolings and racking must be achieved in order to:
 avoid any retention of air or solution on the parts;

 allow the neutralisation and the suppression of the solutions during rinsing operations;

 avoid any accidental contact during treatment between parts and tank equipment, and between

various parts.
7.1.2 Tanks and racks

Materials used must be resistant to temperature and chemically compatible with the products involved

in the sequence of operations.
7.2 Process schedule
7.2.1 General
