Electropolishing 101

Electropolished Compression & Flat Springs

If your company uses compression, torsion or flat springs, you need a custom metal finishing service like electropolishing to reduce or eliminate notches, cracks or other micro defects that could eventually cause premature failure. Able Electropolishing processes millions of springs every year to extend the life of their performance.

Why Electropolishing is Essential for Your Parts

If your metal springs have micro defects, it can potentially lead to accelerated corrosion or cracking over time. When Able electropolishes springs, we remove these surface anomalies, leaving the parts with a consistently smooth finish.

Benefits of Electropolishing Springs

By creating a smooth, unblemished surface, you will improve your springs’ cycle life and corrosion resistance, which prevents premature failure. In addition to functionality, electropolishing your springs removes heat treat discoloration and provides a nice decorative appearance.
