Vecom Group – Global specialist in metal surface treatment

Page last modified:

Chemical metal surface treatment is our speciality. By means of immersion, spray or circulation stainless steel is treated in a professional manner. By passivating the metal components, filters, coolers, vessels, pipework, duct work and general fabrications, a protective chromium oxide skin is formed again, which restores the corrosion-resistant properties of stainless steel. In addition to stainless steel, we also treat products made of duplex, aluminium and carbon steel.

Our metal surface treatment services include:

  • Pickling and Passivating
  • Oxygen and Ultrasonic Cleaning
  • Water Jetting
  • Degreasing
  • Cleaning of coolers, filters or heat exchangers
  • Handling of waste water for third parties
  • Metal treatment product sales

In the United Kingdom, we also have the facility to mechanical polish stainless steel (bright polishing, circle polishing, resizing, grinding).

Our expertise
Pickling and Passivating:
Pickling and passivating removes welding discoloration, annealing skin, foreign iron, restores corrosion resistance and brings it back to the original level of the base material.
Pickling can be carried out in various ways, depending on the size and construction of the object or part to be treated
Chemical Passivation:
We recommend chemical passivation if it is not possible to rinse with good quality water or if the object / component does not have the opportunity to passivate to the air in a clean atmosphere
Risk free pickling and passivating:
The presence of capillaries requires extra attention because otherwise traces of pickling products, pickling residues and contamination can easily remain. We pay extra attention to this in our final checks.
On-Site Cleaning:
The Vecom Group has been specialist in on-site chemical technical cleaning for almost 70 years and can also carry out metal treatments in its own metal laundries
