Advanced Plating Technologies, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin company, is an industry leading provider of passivation of stainless steel to ASTM A, AMS AMS-QQ-P QQ-P Passivation of Corrosion Resistant Steels. RATIONALE. AMSE is issued to incorporate all changes approved by AMS Committee. ASTM F86 for Orthopedic implants, AMS for aerospace, ASTM A It is relatively easy to modify a passivation process to satisfy ASTM A [link is to.

ASTM A renumbered those to nitric 1 through 4, while AMS brought back the ones that had been removed and has types 1 through 8. At Able Electropolishing, we meet the AMS passivation standard with our metal passivation services. Is one better passlvation another for medical devices? Thanks for your time. If so, how could I support that statement?

If you are interested, click the link next to my name and you can get my contact information, then I can direct you to my distributor in Germany. If the part passes the verification test, what differences in function can occur in the part’s use if differing acid baths are used?


It appears that the types are associated with method 1, not method 2. All pzssivation presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer. We design our own parts, and do our own passivation in house, and hence prefer the testing requirements of ASTM A What is AMS Passivation?

But if it’s a medical instrument or implant, then you’re also going to have to show the appropriate tribute to an F standard. You should never ask for “standard passivation” on imports.

Passivation restores the corrosion resistance of stainless steel parts. A discussion started in but continuing through Q. AMS [link by ed. Do you have any experience in passivating parts unlike in the AMS suggestions? What should I tell my customer?

Jan, Both standards are based heavily on the old QQ-P We are quoting passivation of a medical device manufactured from H stainless steel. April 12, A. During forming, machining, tumbling, lapping and other operations performed in the manufacture of stainless steel products, microscopic particles of iron my be embedded in or deposited on the surfaces of these products.

I replied that the parameters are in compliance with standard A but he’s telling that we don’t have objective evidence to support the validation since A defines minimum requirements that could be insufficient to passivatin process. A has a lot of excellent recommendations on general cleaning etc.

Do the parameters in A cover any worst case scenario?

But our favorite choice would be Type 8. In order to prevent this corrosion, semi-finished or finished parts are given a passivation treatment.

The AMS passivation specification pertains to metal passivation services like those performed at Able Electropolishing. In reading ASTM A and AMS it seems that there is quite a bit of overlap but with differences in the bath variables or verification requirements. Rest in peace, Ken. We can also help with your design to ensure RoHS compliance.
