In March, manufacturer Corrosion Innovations announced it acquired the Chlor*Rid product line from Milliken & Company. The line reportedly includes surface decontamination, passivation products, and salt testing kits for soluble salt detection and removal.

“Chlor*Rid has been a staple of the industry for over 30 years and was a strategic target of ours from day one,” said Marlin Lester, CEO of Corrosion Innovations, at the time.

“The liquid products and test kits are utilized all over the world by many different industry segments, including the U.S. military. Our team of AMPP-certified subject matter experts is ready to integrate Chlor*Rid into our market-leading business and provide a synergistic approach to soluble salt removal and testing in the industry.”

Corrosion Innovations reports that Milliken decided to divest the product line because it no longer aligned with the company's overall coating additives business strategy.

According to the release, Robinson, Bradshaw & Hinson, P.A. acted as legal advisor to Milliken. Corrosion Innovations was represented by legal advisor Ice Miller LLP.
