Passivation is a chemical processing service in which metals are treated to inhibit surface corrosion. Our experts provide passivation testing services for materials and components to ensure that they are properly protected from the elements.
Much like the natural oxidation of copper, passivation works by applying a layer of oxide to a material, protecting it from developing rust and other defects. An important part of metals processing, passivation helps extend the life and integrity of products across sectors.
