Pickling and passivation

Two processes to achieve the ultimate goal: perfection

Pickling after the construction phase provides complete removal of oxide skin and impurities. It restores corrosion resistance and returns to the quality level of the original base material and removes the naturally occurring chromium oxide skin and activates the surface.

Passivation is a processing technique, which usually follows after pickling and rinsing, with the surface provided with a passive coating. The actual passivation takes place in stainless steel by treatment in a nitric acid bath, thus returning the passive state by restoring the layer of chromium oxide. Due to this treatment, the underlying metal gets its original corrosion protection back.
