Protect Against Rust with Stainless Steel Passivation Services

Stainless steel is resistant to corrosion and rust, but that doesn’t mean it is completely invulnerable to them. Under some conditions, stainless steel can become rusty. Whether from typical water exposure or through exposure to intense heat, corrosive chemicals, grease, or other causes, stainless steel is not completely impervious to rust. High Performance Metal Finishing can make sure that any stainless steel you need for your next project is properly prepared through our stainless steel passivation services. In today’s post, we will discuss how the passivation process protects your stainless steel against corrosion.

What is Passivation?

The passivation process involves the use of a specialized chemical solution to clear the stainless steel surface of any free iron. As a result, the chemical treatment produces a protective oxide layer, also known as a passivation film, on the stainless steel surface that is less vulnerable to chemical reactions that cause corrosion. This makes the stainless steel resistant to rust, which will prolong the life of the product made with the steel.

Perfect for Food Preparation

Stainless steel is one of the most popular options for food preparation in the food industry. These prep tables get exposed to different foods and chemicals that can cause the surfaces to oxidation or rust. While keeping these surfaces clean can certainly help keep the stainless steel in good condition, the passivation process will make the stainless steel even more resistant to oxidation. This will make the passivated stainless steel longer lasting than stainless steel that has not undergone the process. This makes stainless steel passivation a great process for food service tables, which need the extra protection against the constant abuse they receive from day to day.
