304 Stainless Steel

PROBLEM:

This formed bracket is used in a military optical application. The part after forming was dull and under closer inspection showed evidence of imbedded contaminates normal for this type of fabrication.

SOLUTION:

Electropolishing removed the outer layer of surface metal containing the contaminants. Corrosion resistance was enhanced by enriching the chromium oxide layer on the surface of the material. The parts were left chemically clean and ready for final assembly
