(2000)

Electropolishing is considered the best way to passivate stainless steel. What particular application did you have in mind?

We use the Type 8 formulation found in AMS2700 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet], which is the same as the Type VIII found in the olde QQ-P-35 [link is to free spec at Defense Logistics Agency, dla.mil]. 45-55% nitric acid in water, 120-130F, for 30 minutes minimum. We don't use a chromate dip afterward.
