What is meant by passivated?

When referring to metals like steel or aluminum, a material is passive when it does not react to oxygen or water. A passivated material has been treated with a chemical process to remove iron. After the iron is removed, the metal is rinsed and allowed to dry, and the drying process creates the desired protective oxidative layer.
