Electropolishing of Stainless Steel








Often called reverse plating, electropolishing removes a variety of surface contaminants from the surface of stainless steel, leaving behind a higher concentration of nickel and chromium molecules at the part surface.  Electropolishing works hardest on the micro peaks of the surface providing a smoother, brighter surface. This finishing process improves corrosion resistance and the appearance of the part.  Electropolishing works by an electro-chemical reaction in which metal dissolves faster at surface micro peaks, creating a leveling effect on the surface of the work piece.
