Electropolishing and Passivation Standards

AMS 2700 Passivation Standard

As a global organization of engineers and other technical experts, SAE International provides consensus-formed standards that help define the best practices for processing aerospace, automotive and commercial vehicle components—including metal passivation services. The AMS 2700 passivation specification addresses industry standards for treating certain types of stainless steel parts, and it’s a standard the Able Electropolishing meets.

What is AMS 2700 Passivation?

The AMS 2700 passivation specification pertains to metal passivation services like those performed at Able Electropolishing. Specifically, this standard refers to the requirements for removing surface contaminants like free iron from the surface of corrosion-resistant steel parts. Removing these contaminants improves corrosion resistance and the overall longevity of the part.

Able’s Metal Passivation Services
