ASSDA Webinar: Stainless Steel Pickling and Passivation


Can you answer this question: If you pickle stainless steel, is it also passivated? 

Or do you agree with this statement: I wash my stainless steel regularly, so it is automatically passivated.

Or would you discard stainless steel with rust stains and deem it as unrepairable? 

All these are related, and this webinar will explain what pickling and passivation are and what they do. 
Specifically, the topics include:

  • The differences between cleaning, pickling and passivation
  • Pickling and passivation chemicals and their differences
  • Necessary preparations before pickling or passivation, e.g. cleaning
  • Application methods and their effectiveness
  • How to assess the effectiveness of chemical treatments
  • Electropolishing vs. electrocleaning: Are they the same?
  • Electrochemical treatments by bath, wand or sponge and the effects
  • Standards that can be used and their limitations
  • What to do to keep your stainless steel passive

Presenter: Dr Graham Sussex, Technical Specialist
