Comparison to Passivation

Electropolishing gives your part greater corrosion resistance, longevity and performance for a broader range of alloys than passivation can, as well as providing other benefits that passivation does not. These include:

  • Eliminating weld and heat treat discoloration
  • Sizing
  • Microfinishing
  • Ultracleaning
  • Deburring

 

Though passivation removes free iron and other contaminants from the surfaces of stainless steel parts, the process is not as versatile or as effective as electropolishing.
