A worldwide leader in citric acid passivation solutions

This process is both hazardous and environmentally unfriendly. Stellar Solutions has a complete line of products
for safer and easier production and corrosion protection.

CitriSurf: citric acid based cleaning and passivation solutions that replace the old nitric acid methods
Rust Rescue: providing additional protection in corrosive environments and on pitted stainless steel
