Electropolishing: The Best Path to Passive Parts? (.PDF Download)

Many stainless-steel automotive parts must undergo passivation to ensure they are adequately corrosion-resistant and not prone to early failure, two factors critical for performance and a long operational life. If the passivation process is performed incorrectly, parts may become more susceptible to corrosion rather than less. This makes it imperative that the right passivation process is used in treating specific alloys. But how do you know if your stainless-steel parts are passive, requirem
