Electropolishing Service for 400 Series Stainless Steel

At Able Electropolishing, we routinely process 400 series stainless steel parts using our signature electropolishing treatment. Following our electropolishing service, these stainless steel parts are left with a deburred, smooth finish that is greatly resistant to corrosion. Parts made from 400 series stainless steel that undergo our electropolishing will benefit from improved cycle-life performance.

When people discuss stainless steel 400 series electropolishing, the first thing that comes to mind is a part with a bright finish. Though the bright finish is the most identifiable trait, there are some important, often overlooked benefits of this material removal process. These benefits include deburring, microfinish improvement, ultracleaning, improved corrosion resistance, fatigue life improvement and sizing. These metal improvement benefits offer great promise to design and production engineers for cost savings and product improvement.

Able can electropolish a variety of stainless steel parts and components including 400 series and many other alloys. We have been providing metal finishing services to a variety of industries since 1954, and we can do the same for you.
