Precipitating Hardening Grade Stainless Steel

At Able Electropolishing, we specialize in electropolishing all of the various stainless steel alloys, including the precipitating hardness grades: 17-4, 17-7, 13-8 and 15-5. Once treated, the parts receive multiple benefits, from deburring to microinch finish improvement. Removing microscopic defects from the surface leads to better part performance and increased cycle-life.

Contact us today to talk to us about processing your stainless steel parts made from precipitating hardening grades.
