Stainless steel is naturally self-passivating, forming an oxidation layer on newly created surfaces. Idex Heath & Science Scientific takes extra steps to ensure the chemical resistance of the stainless steel tubing by manually passivating before and after the tubing is cut into specified lengths.
Precut 316 stainless steel tubing:
Ends are machine cut and polished
Edges are deburred inside and outside
Tubing is passivated
Inside is flushed with reagent-grade isopropanol
Color-coded banding for easy identification of the inner diameter
All stainless-steel tubing longer than 1m is coiled
