I am looking for very detailed references regarding passivation. In particular, I want to be able to highlight any potential problem areas in manufacturing post-passivation that could leave my 304 Stainless more susceptible to corrosion--molding pins, molding track supports, and grinding. Could anyone please provide some guidance. I work in a medical device company, and while these parts are not implants, they will be in temporary contact with the patient.

I don't know of any detailed references that would help you. I would be happy to assist in evaluating your current manufacturing process for possible problem areas.
