What is passivation?
Passivation is the super cleaning of stainless steel to remove any free iron contamination left on the surface from the machining / fabrication processes which could result in premature corrosion.
The passivation process results in the formation of a very thin, transparent oxide film which protects the stainless steel from corrosion.
