The maximum ratio of chromium to iron and the depth at which it occurs are the most direct measures of the chromium enrichment in a material oxide layer. Typical ratios are about 1:5 or greater for well-electropolished 316L stainless steel. The depth at which the maximum Cr/Fe ratio is found varies but is usually about one-half the oxide thickness.
