Passivation

At Mechanical Metal Finishing in Gardena, CA, we offer passivation which reduces the chemical reactivity of a metal part.

Meeting AeroSpace and commercial standards, this is a bulk processing chemical treatment to make stainless steel passive to oxidation (rust).

This is done by removing free iron from the surface. We offer many types and spec numbers for this process, as well as testing.
