Passivation is a chemical processing service in which metals are surface treated to inhibit corrosion. Much like the natural oxidation of copper, passivation works by applying a layer of oxide to a material to protect it from developing rust, cracking, or other issues.

Element’s passivation services can assist with both applying the protective coating and checking parts for previous passivation. Our experts can perform services to a variety of different specifications, and have experience with aerospace, military, automotive and commercial applications.
