Passivation is a chemical treatment that removes particles and contamination from the surface of a material. It allows for the formation of a passive film on the cleaned surface, which prevents corrosion.
Passivation is commonly used on implantable medical devices and medical instruments.
Tecomet offers passivation at many facilities as a secondary service to support our other manufacturing capabilities. This allows us to have more control in the supply chain and over lead times. Passivation is not offered as a standalone service.
