acid pickling stainless steel

Architects and engineers look at many different factors when selecting which building materials to use for their projects and designs. The one key characteristic for choosing stainless steel is its corrosion resistance. Finishing treatments like passivation and pickling are what help stainless steels keep their corrosion resistance for so long.


Pickling is a very similar process to passivation. Pickling is the removal of any high temperature scale and the low chromium layer of the steel surface by a chemical treatment such as nitric or hydrofluoric acids. Because pickling involves a removal of metal layers, it can sometimes cause a change in appearance.
