Passivation

Passivation is a chemical treatment for stainless steel and other alloys that enhances the ability of the treated surfaces to resist corrosion.

Main AdvantagesWorth Noting
  • Removes surface contamination
  • Reduces risk of contamination
  • Provides better corrosion resistance
  • Provides a shiny surface
  • Results in electrically non-conductive aluminium parts
  • Passivation does not depend on electrochemical reactions
  • Passivating is not a method to remove oxide scale from machined parts

How Passivation Works

In stainless steel, the passivation process uses nitric acid or citric acid to remove free iron from the surface. The chemical treatment creates an outer layer of shield or passivation film that enhances the ability of the treated surfaces to resist corrosion.
