Abstract:
    SPA is a process of stainless steel passivation, optimized in such a way so that our steel product can be used for the industrial applications, with improved lifespan and durability.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The majority of the expenses of the parts used in our industry is due to them being imported. SPA will enhance the lifetime and characteristics of SS, making the product available in the market at a lower price, decreasing the imports and bringing profit. A total of 70% parts fall into this category
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The product is best suited for marine applications among which our NAVY is one which will have the maximum use of our fleets of ships on duty. Along with industries that use stainless steel example, water coolant parts, etc. will have its use that is more than 65% of all industries.
How will the solution works
    SPA is a process in which by reverse engineering a recipe is generated to produce a chemically resistant or an inert oxide layer on the exposed surface of the steel in an oxygen containing environment. The reaction is spontaneous provided that the surface is thoroughly descaled. A chemical dissolution by Nitric acid results in the removal of exogenous iron from the surface of the stainless steel allowing the process to be more productive and useful.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    SPA is a reverse engineered process to end the high costs of industries on imported parts. So far this coating is being done nowhere in Pakistan, hence our solution is unique in its own way as it not only ends the problem of high costs but presents a business opportunity itself.
