What is passivation?

Does galvanized steel have to be provided with a specific protective layer? Then passivation offers a solution. Passivation is a treatment in which the surface of metal is treated with a chemical solution, such as nitric acid, and then cleaned under high pressure. By passivation of metal, the original protective layer is restored.

Why Passivation?

A metal or stainless steel is passivated if the product…

  • needs extra protection against corrosion
  • should be more scratch resistant
  • has to undergo a powder coating or lacquer treatment
  • should conduct better
