A chemical reaction; the resulting substance is a salt.

I would need to know what type of metal you are talking about. All metals react different to acid, the key is to use the correct acid chemistry to achieve what you are trying to do. Mix Nitric Acid and 400 series SS, a little more than salt with happen lol
