Metal Coating and Plating for the Food Service Industry

Passivation is a treatment for stainless steel and other metal alloys that increases the ability of the surface to resist corrosion.  Machining, fabrication, and welding leave behind contaminants such as metal oxides, inclusions, and fabrication debris that will diminish the metals’ inherent ability to resist corrosion and make it more vulnerable to environmental factors.  The passivation treatment process returns metal back to its original corrosion-resistant state, provides a smooth, uniform appearance and extends the life of the product.  As with all of our services, detailed metal masking solutions are available to ensure that finishes are applied precisely.
