The ASTM A passivation standard ensures high quality results for passivated stainless steel. Learn how Able Electropolishing meets these standards. 35A, AMS C, ASTM A and ASTM A standards. Passivation alone will not remove heavy adherent oxide films created from heat treatment. Delstar Metal Finishing offers passivation services that meet the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) A standards. The ASTM A standards.

Especially in the fastener industry I have seen it is difficult to source a specific product according to a specific type within these standards. The chemical reactions of the passivating media on the surface of the stainless steel shall be stopped by rinsing of the stainless steel part, with or without a separate neutralization treatment.
