Please explain to me the solution(s) used in annealing, pickling, and passivating SS304, 304L, 316 materials. What is the purpose of this treatment? Is there literature out there that I can download which will go into the details of why this process is used?
After the process is there any detrimental effect to mechanically polishing the surface.
Thanks for your time
