A process that removes contaminants and restores appropriate protection of stainless steel

The whole process may seem difficult and complicated but you don't have to worry about it. It includes degreasing, etching and passivation of stainless steel. Our qualified team will make sure that the whole procedure is carried out as quickly and efficiently as possible. Extensive experience means that we have this type of order mastered to perfection


1. Degreasing

This process prepares steel elements for further work. We ensure that there is no grease on them that could interfere with the whole process. We use only well-proven chemicals and take care of their safe disposal.

2. Pickling

This is the next stage of our activities. This process is used to clear the metal's surface layer of corrosion, oxides, rust, scale - any places where the chromium content on the surface of the steel has been reduced. After all that is done, we rinse the steel with cold pressurised water. We take care to remove all chemical residues.

3. Passivation

This consists in the formation of a protective layer of stainless steel. A thin layer of chromium oxide forms on the surface of the stainless steel. This is the basic form of corrosion protection for acid-resistant steels.

Final rinse

After the procedure is completed, we rinse the surface with cold water under pressure. We take care to get rid of all chemical residues.

5. Inspection

Finally, we always conduct inspections. First of all, we check the pH and visual cleanliness. The surface should appear clean and without blemishes. In addition, we perform a "white cloth" test. If there is no dirt on the white cloth with acetone - the process can be considered complete.

Proper inspection gives you confidence that all chemicals have been removed. You can safely introduce products and enjoy a perfectly clean experience.
