Passivation is a technique used to protect metals and other materials from corrosion and damage. During passivation, a thin layer is formed on the surface of the metal or material, which consists of oxides and other chemical compounds. These compounds are called “passive layers”, hence the name of the procedure.
Passivation can be accomplished in a number of ways, including chemical reactions, electrochemical processes, coating the surface with a layer of natural or chemically created metal or plastic, or using various types of coatings.
Passivation is often used to protect metal surfaces from corrosion. This is important because corrosion can cause serious damage to the product or equipment over time. Passivation can also serve to protect metal surfaces from mechanical or weather damage.
In addition, passivation is used to protect materials such as glass, ceramics, plastics and more. We will be happy to advise you whether the procedure is suitable for your products.
Passivation of metals and materials is an important technique to ensure the long-term health and functionality of a product. By using passivation, the product can be protected from harmful environmental influences and ensure that it is in good condition for a long time.
