Advanced Plating Technologies, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin company, is an industry leading provider of passivation of stainless steel to ASTM A, AMS AMS-QQ-P QQ-P Passivation of Corrosion Resistant Steels. RATIONALE. AMSE is issued to incorporate all changes approved by AMS Committee. ASTM F86 for Orthopedic implants, AMS for aerospace, ASTM A It is relatively easy to modify a passivation process to satisfy ASTM A [link is to.

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 that could be insufficient to my process.

If you do not specify, they can use passivagion they want, even ways that are not in any of the specifications! Hello, While carrying out passivation tests we came across the following apparent contrast.

A has a lot of excellent recommendations on general cleaning etc. This has been a hit and miss for us with the different companies.

AMS 2700 Method 1 Type II Passivation for Medical Device

As far as the stainless steel passivation process itself, you’re pretty much always going to work your way back to A ASTM A renumbered those to nitric 1 through 4, while AMS brought back the ones that had been removed and has types 1 through 8.

Method 1 is subdivided into 8 Types corresponding to the types in old QQ-P while Method 2 is not subdivided. Is one better than another for medical devices? Hello, we’ve sent many parts to our different passivation vendors and keep getting parts that are “Flash attacked” or etched. All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer.

This is actually an oversight of A that will be corrected in the next revision. But our favorite choice would be Type 8. If allowed to remain, the iron particles provide corrosion sites that will ultimately result in accelerated corrosion of the product.

One of the differences is in the definition of ‘a lot’ for testing purposes. Since you’re considering an AMS spec, I assume you have aerospace customers. I persuaded my Supervisor to at least try the citric solution for the 1.

QQ-PB contained six nitric acid bath Types.

You can guess the increase in the amount of testing involved. As you see, we added your question to a thread which already answers it. If so, how could I support that statement? I really appreciate your collaboration. Many OEM passivation specifications are derived from these guiding documents. Can you please tell me the differences between pawsivation passivation processes AMS [link by ed.

Yet I never had any problems when we did use type II, and a few of our parts were H condition. We are set up for this process but not the high concentration-high temp nitric process.

In simple terms, he’s saying that given 2 SS surfaces which have different concentrations of free iron, the chemical reaction will take longer in the surface with more free iron. Hey guys, thanks to your input. ASTM F86 [link by ed. Lee Kremer has pointed out that A is not a Specification, only a Practice. Passivarion on the previous information, the concern is regarding the minimum requirements in A Thank you for your hard work which the finishing world continues to benefit from.


Passivation restores the corrosion resistance of stainless steel parts. Passviation passivation process consists of immersing the stainless steel in a solution of citric acid, or other acid plus oxidizing salts, which dissolves the embedded or deposited iron and restores the original corrosion-resistant surface a thin, transparent oxide film. Mas is AMS Passivation?

To me this means volume percent of pure nitric acid, resulting in significantly stronger passivation solutions than AMS If you are interested, click the link next qms my name and you can get my contact information, then I can direct you to my distributor in Germany.

We are quoting passivation of a medical device manufactured from H stainless steel.

Of lassivation testing with your parts against desired performance levels is recommended as well. If you’re having it done for you, the testing is someone else’s problem, so you might consider AMS Experts affiliated with SAE International include those in industries like commercial vehicles, automotive and aerospace—all industries for 7200 Able Electropolishing provides stainless steel passivation.

December 2, A. Lee Kremer Stellar Solutions, Inc. David, Go ahead and try a small piece of in the Type 8 bath.
