Here at Mechanical Metal Finishing, we are proud to be able to offer our top-quality electropolishing services. Many people are probably unfamiliar with the term electropolishing or maybe have never even heard of it before, so let us explain. Electropolishing (also known as electrochemical polishing, anodic polishing, or electrolytic polishing) is a reverse electroplating process that is similar to anodizing (a passivation process used to increase the thickness of the oxide layer on metal parts). We primarily carry out this process of electropolishing on various grades of stainless steel. There are many benefits to this process, so let’s review what each of them are…
The benefits of electropolishing
- The outcome of this process is a steel part with higher luster
- Dissolved free iron, inclusions, and embedded particles from the surface
- Improves the surface chemistry of stainless steel parts
- Improves atomic ratios of the alloying elements
- Superior corrosion protection
- Improves the performance and longevity of the material being polished
- A marketable finish
As you can now see, there are a variety of benefits to be received when using an electropolishing process such as this, just a few of them being as important as corrosion protection and improved longevity. Here at Metal Mechanical Finishing, we are grateful to be able to work with both individuals and small and large businesses who need metal parts deburred and finished. Our main processes offered are deburring metal, but we also work with plastic, 3-D printed parts, and chemical processing.
If you have any further questions regarding our electropolishing process, the benefits it may have to you or your business, our prices, our other services offered, or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact us! We look forward to speaking with you so that we can provide you with all of the most relevant information to get your questions answered before we do business together.
