It includes several alternative tests, with acceptance criteria, for confirmation of effectiveness of such treatments for stainless steel parts.

ASTM A vs. AMS vs. ASTM F86? Which is the right passivation spec?
Have the plater do so, and then certify to multiple standards. The "right" spec is the one that your customer requires. It's not a9667 to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages.
These ASTM-approved tests may include: Appendix X1 and Appendix X2 give some a67 information and provides some general guidelines regarding the selection of passivation treatments appropriate to particular grades of stainless steel. There are other in-house specifications for some companies.
ASTM A967 vs. AMS 2700? Which is the right passivation spec?
Is one better than another for medical devices? Both contain a carryover of QQ-PC with the addition of the more recently developed citric acid based process.
December 19, A. Ray, Thank you for answering. A free iron test shall be used for the detection of free iron on the surface of stainless steel.
And there are other differences.
Also, how common is it for a purchaser of a good to specify a specific passivation type in a standard rather than reference the entire standard and leave the type selection up to the manufacturer? The two standards x967 essentially equivalent.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Passivation is one of the most popular forms of metal finishing along with electro and electroless plating and industrial powder coating.
ASTM A Standard Passivation Treatment For Stainless Steel
The passivated parts shall exhibit a chemically clean surface and shall, on visual inspection, show no etching, pitting, or frosting. A renumbers those to 1 through 4 there is no such thing as Astn Type 6 or 7 while restores the missing four for a total of eight Types. Can you please tell me the differences between the passivation processes AMS [link by ed.
By meeting standards set by the ASTM and other organizations, we can ensure consistently-high quality for a broad range of metal parts across many industries. The tests the ASTM document considers valid are the following:.
This specification makes no recommendations regarding the suitability of any grade, treatment, or aatm criteria for any particular application or class of applications. Passivation is the overlaying of a substrate or base layer with another metal. They supply exact and stringent standards finishing companies rely on to provide the best products possible. Rest in peace, Ken.
The passivation standards listed in the ASTM document embrace a variety of potential methods and techniques. In reading through the specification I believe the drawing is incorrect. The tests the ASTM document considers valid are the following: Stainless steel passivation performed to the ASTM A standards meets these standards by passing tests that confirm its effectiveness, particularly as it pertains to removing free iron from the cold-worked surfaces.
The chemical reactions of the passivating media asstm the surface of the stainless steel shall be stopped by rinsing of the stainless steel part, with or without a separate neutralization treatment. Chemical passivation has as its major goal to provide a layer of protection over the base metal. The 3 consensus specifications used at this time, and that should be used for all specifications of passivation are:.

He passed away May 14, The treatments are the following: Lee Kremer has pointed out that A is not a Specification, only a Practice. Note 1 — Free iron denotes iron present on the surface of the parts, including but not limited to iron contamination, iron-tool marks, residual-iron salts atsm pickling solutions, iron dust, atmospheric exposure, iron deposits in welds, embedded iron and iron oxide.
