Passivation of Stainless Steel

Passivation is a chemical process in which a material becomes passive, meaning the material is less affected by environmental factors, such as air and water. Passivation helps prevent corrosion and eradicates pitting on the surface of stainless steel.  However, the true benefit of passivation comes from the formation of an inert surface layer.  Many metals have a thin oxide layer already, making it naturally resistant to corrosion and rust.  Passivation thickens that naturally occurring oxide layer.
