Microsheen also features passivating of stainless steel parts.
Passivating is a
process strictly applicable to stainless steel.
chemical treatment removes all ferrous metal and microscopic
impurities such as airborne iron, steel or dust particles from
These impurities may cause corrosion and, in many cases,
your finished product, as the part/equipment is used during
A more thorough
description of passivation is the regeneration of the passive
film that protects stainless steel. This film will form
spontaneously over time
after the part leaves the pickling tank, however the passivating
process aims to
accelerate this action so that it occurs before the part leaves
the passivating tank.
Most passivating solutions are based on nitric acid, which is
highly oxidizing and
instantly restores the passive layer.
capabilities are for small batch passivating, priced either by the
piece or by the pound, certified to QQ-P-35 and ASTM A967.
