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.

What is standard to you may not be standard to them. June 11—13, Chicago, IL. A is a standard covering treatments to passivate stainless steel regardless of what it will be used for and then test methods to show that it was passivated.

As far as the additives, they aren’t a,s necessary, but I like to think they do help quite a bit, since that’s essentially what my product is.

AMS Passivation Standards | Corrosion Resistance Improvement

Ray Kremer Stellar Solutions, Inc. July 6, A.

But again, please describe your situation. November 27, — this entry appended to this thread by editor in lieu of spawning a duplicative thread A. But if it’s a medical instrument or implant, then you’re also going to have to show the appropriate tribute to an F standard. Created with Webvanta CMS. Do the parameters in A cover any worst case scenario?

In order to prevent this corrosion, semi-finished or finished parts are given a passivation treatment. Is one better than another for medical devices? One of the differences is in the definition of ‘a lot’ for testing purposes. Do you have any experience in passivating parts unlike in the AMS suggestions?


AMS 2700 Passivation Standard

Hey guys, thanks to your input. Lee Kremer has pointed out that A is not a Specification, only a Practice. Always specify exactly what you want– e. I was looking at this thread and had this question If allowed to remain, the iron particles provide corrosion sites that will ultimately result in accelerated corrosion of the product.

It was cancelled in early in favor of AMS It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these passivatioj.

The 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.

AMS [link by ed.

March 7, A. November 7, A. Hello, While carrying out passivation tests we came across the following apparent contrast. I persuaded my Supervisor to at least try the citric solution for the 1. Many OEM passivation specifications are derived from these guiding documents. You should never ask for “standard passivation” on imports.

AMS Method 1 Type II Passivation for Medical Device

Thank you for your hard work which the finishing world continues to benefit from. John Wilt [returning] – Cambridge, Massachusetts.

April 12, A. What is AMS Passivation?

Amz the ASTM A and the nitric acid concentrations mentioned must be percentage by volume of a reagent of 67 wt. If so, how could I support that statement? As a global organization of engineers and other technical passivatiin, SAE International provides consensus-formed standards that help define the best practices for processing aerospace, automotive and commercial vehicle components—including metal passivation services.


We appended your question to a thread which should clearly answer it for you: If passigation vendors must comply with AMS Method 1, Type 2, one suggestion is that the parts be cleaned better before passivation because some people claim that even minuscule traces of oils can cause this etching passivtion, perhaps by generating some sort of organic acid which etches the parts.

Indeed also my conclusion is that it is an omission. F86 refers to surgical implants of any metallic alloy, and basically just says “do whatever treatment is applicable and appropriate to ensure corrosion resistance”.

Do you have any recommendations for us passivaion little bit more detailed specifications than these in the AMS [link by ed. Our database shop order system assures the same passivation process which has been selected will be specified each and every time the job comes to our shop. All The specifications are the same, then why are the Names different?

Is there anything we can do or suggest so that this doesn’t continue happening?
