Cleaning or shipping solution on 316 S/S fasteners


Our client has 316 S/S nuts holding together track hooks that carry items through a spray booth. It may be some sort of power coating, or static charge paint spraying that they do. The problem is that some 316 nuts from one supplier have the coating sticking to them, others don't allow anything to attach. I heard there is a coating or solution that these nuts are cleaned with after manufacture that can sometimes stay on the nuts.

Any ideas what this might be?

Stainless steel is very commonly electropolished as a way of eliminating its "tooth" so that things won't stick to it.
