Problem Solving by Elimination
The welding of stainless steel and the resultant damaged chromium oxide layer has long been a challenge for manufacturers. Aside from addressing aesthetics, the visible heat tint, removing this damaged layer (pickling) and restoring a healthy chromium oxide layer (passivating) is the only way to ensure the stainless steel part performs to its optimum potential.
