Passivation is the treatment of a stainless steel with a mild acid solution. It is intended to promote the formation of a thin transparent oxide film that will prevent any rust spotting.

This process removes free iron and other foreign matter imbedded in or smeared on the surface during machining, pressing, tumbling, lapping and abrasive blasting that if allowed to stay will produce rust spots on the stainless steel surface.
