Passivation is a chemical processing service offered by Element in which metals are surface treated to inhibit corrosion, usually by applying a layer of oxide to the material, much like the natural oxidation of copper. 

Passivation often requires a pre-cleaning in acid solutions to prepare the surface and dissolve any impurities. Element supports aerospace, defense and military, automotive, and other industrial and commercial sectors with passivation and other chemical processing treatments.
