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.

Can you please tell me the differences between the passivation processes AMS [link by ed. It includes recommendations and precautions for a97, cleaning, and passivation of stainless steel parts. The ASTM has established certain criterion to achieve consistent product quality in the metal finishing industry.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
AeroDef April 30 – May 1 Gain access to the technologies and people in aerospace and defense manufacturing. Immediately after the removal from the passivating solution, the parts shall be thoroughly rinsed, using stagnant, countercurrent, or spray washes, singly or in combination, with or without a separate chemical treatment for neutralization of the passivation media.
The following tests shall be performed on each lot of stainless steel parts: October astn, A.
Also, how common is it for a purchaser of a good to specify a specific passivation type in a standard rather than reference the entire standard and leave the type selection up to the manufacturer?
The standards of ASTM A provide specific details of the acceptable methods required for asrm stainless steel.

Thank you for your hard work which the finishing world continues to benefit from. Electropolishing and A97 Standards. Stainless Steel Passivation and More Able Electropolishing provides metal passivation services that meet the ASTM A standards, as well as other finishing treatments that improve the corrosion resistance of stainless steel and various other alloys.
This is actually an oversight of A that will be corrected in the next revision. It includes several alternative tests, with acceptance criteria, for confirmation of effectiveness of xstm treatments for stainless steel parts. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Ken Vlach – Goleta, California. I replied that the parameters are in astk with standard A but he’s telling that we don’t have objective evidence to support the validation since A defines minimum requirements that could be insufficient to my process.

A has a lot of excellent recommendations on general cleaning etc. Appendix X1 and Appendix X2 give some nonmandatory information and provides some general guidelines aa967 the selection of passivation treatments appropriate to particular grades of stainless steel.
Is this a correct assessment? They supply exact and stringent standards finishing companies rely on to provide the best products possible. The approach involves several steps. Gain access to the technologies and people in aerospace and defense manufacturing.
Stainless steel passivation performed to the ASTM A standards meets these standards by passing tests that confirm its effectiveness, awtm as it pertains to removing free iron from aatm cold-worked surfaces.
As far as the stainless steel passivation process itself, you’re pretty much always going to work your way back to A 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. Is your business surgical implants, or are you with a passivation shop, or what?
In simple terms, he’s saying that given 2 SS surfaces which have different concentrations of free iron, the chemical reaction will take longer in the surface with more free iron. One of the differences is in the definition of ‘a lot’ for testing purposes. This specification covers several different types of chemical passivation treatments for stainless steel parts.
July 6, A. March 7, A. And there are other differences. Ray Kremer Stellar Solutions, Inc. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages.
From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: Some customers ask for the parts to pass salt spray testing longer than A’s required 2 hours, etc.
Method 1 is subdivided into 8 Types corresponding to the types in old QQ-P while Method 2 is not subdivided. Is there any clear direction or is it optional? Copper sulfate testing Damp Cloth Test High humidity testing Potassium Ferricyanide—Nitric Acid Test Salt spray testing Water immersion testing The instructions for conducting such tests as well as the acceptable results are also provided.
Especially in the fastener industry I have seen it is difficult to source a specific product according to a specific type within these standards.
