A worldwide leader in citric acid passivation solutions and other low-hazard products for cleaning and care of stainless steel

Passivation of stainless steel has conventionally been accomplished by immersing the steel in a nitric acid bath.  This process is both hazardous and environmentally unfriendly. Stellar Solutions has a complete line of stainless steel passivation products for safer and easier production and corrosion protection which conform to many industry standards, including ASTM A967, A380, and AMS 2700.
