Reaction of Magnesium Hydroxide with passive layer of stainless steel





September 21, 2010

Are there any known interactions with the Chromium Oxide ("Passive Layer") on 316 Stainless Steel and Magnesium Hydroxide?

Hi, Michael. I'd be inclined to doubt it because magnesium hydroxide is only slightly alkaline, and not particularly reactive, whereas passivated stainless steel is fairly robust. But abstract questions are difficult to respond to, short of doing the literature search myself :-)

Can you put the question into the context of your own situation? Thanks.
