French to English translations [PRO] Science - Medical: Instruments / implants
French term or phrase:s'associer à
"Il est possible qu’une partie de la surface non couverte par le métal noble se passive à son tour; son potentiel électrique s’associe au potentiel électrique généré par la zone couverte par le métal noble."

Explanation: "It is possible that part of the surface not covered by the noble metal is passive by nature; ts electrical potential is associated with the electrical potential generated by the zone covered by the noble metal."
Can we know a little bit more about the reason for asking this question. Is it about corrosion, and/or tissue rejection ?
Where is the electrical potential being measured ? Is it bone and nickel or gold and nickel ?
