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.

As far as the stainless steel passivation process itself, you’re pretty much always going to work your way back to Astmm This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

ASTM A967 Passivation Standard
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 tests the ASTM document considers valid are the following:.
Astk A renumbered those to nitric 1 through 4, while AMS brought back the ones that had been removed and has types 1 through 8. And there are other differences.
Is one better than another for medical devices? You should never ask for “standard passivation” on imports.
ASTM A967 vs. AMS 2700? Which is the right passivation spec?
Ray, Thank you for answering. By adhering to the specifications provided them, ProPlate is capable of guaranteeing each product they produce will be as those that follow.
It was cancelled in early in favor of AMS The standards that collectively make up the ASTM A passivation specification ensure that nitric and citric stainless steel passivation is performed properly and with satm results. Lee Kremer Stellar Solutions, Inc. The two standards are essentially equivalent. Indeed also my conclusion is that it is an omission.
Based on the previous information, the concern is regarding the minimum requirements in A The 3 consensus specifications used at this time, and that should be used for all specifications of passivation are:. I replied that the parameters are in compliance with standard A but he’s telling that we don’t have objective evidence to support the validation since A defines minimum requirements asm could be insufficient to my process.
Precision Machining Technology Show. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
ASTM A – 01 Standard Specification for Chemical Passivation Treatments for Stainless Steel Parts
w967 It appears that the types are associated with method 1, not method 2. Especially in the fastener industry I have seen it is difficult to source a specific product according to a specific type within these standards.
But again, please describe your situation. This specification makes no recommendations regarding the suitability of any grade, treatment, or acceptance criteria for any particular application or class of applications. The approach involves several steps.
ASTM A Standard Passivation Treatment For Stainless Steel
Rest in a9967, Ken. What should I tell my customer? There are other in-house specifications for some companies. I assume that A was developed running several extreme conditions but I’ve been looking for that information and couldn’t find anything about it. The tests the ASTM document considers valid are the following: To me this means volume percent of pure nitric acid, resulting in significantly stronger passivation solutions than AMS Hello, While carrying out passivation tests we came across the following apparent contrast.
Passivation is the overlaying of a substrate or base layer with another metal.
