As a tough, corrosion-resistant and resilient alloy, MP35N is well-suited for use in manufacturing a wide variety of parts, like springs, fasteners, electrical components and more. Despite the alloy’s natural strength, imperfections left by manufacturing can cause premature part failure. MP35N electropolishing services eliminate those imperfections, allowing parts made from this material to function more effectively.
Unlike other metal finishing services, electropolishing is a reverse plating process that actively removes surface material from metal parts—including MP35N. Electropolishing removes a controlled, uniform amount of surface metal in an electrochemical bath, stripping away surface imperfections and leaving behind a smooth, clean surface.
Because of its strength under pressure and extreme resilience, MP35N is frequently used for parts that flex, bend and cycle, like springs. In parts like these, even microscopic surface imperfections like cracks and notches can ultimately compromise longevity. With consistent part use, these imperfections can worsen over time, resulting in premature failure.
Electropolishing MP35N typically removes .0005” to .001” total material from the part, and in the process, removes the cracks and notches that could expand and cause premature part failure. Along with removing these structural imperfections, electropolishing removes any contaminants embedded in the part’s surface material, eliminating potential initiation sites for corrosion. Electropolishing is also more precise and predictable than many other metal finishing services, allowing us to remove a highly-controlled, uniform amount of surface material.
From implantable devices to surgical instruments, electropolishing is a single-process treatment that results in biocompatible, safe and ultra clean parts.
We offer aerospace vendors and original equipment manufacturers our signature metal finishing services to increase fatigue-resistance for their metal parts, rendering them capable of withstanding the stress and corrosion that comes with long-term use.
Our strict adherence to industry standards ensures that pharmaceutical components are electropolished in accordance with ASTM B912 and ASME BPE specifications. These products are clean and smooth, corrosion resistant and contaminant free.
Corrosion resistance and microfinish improvement are essential for critical automotive parts, making electropolishing an increasingly beneficial option for automakers.
Our metal finishing services help increase corrosion resistance for these parts, and by removing the outermost layer of metal withelectropolishing the durability and longevity of these appliance components is increased.
Electropolishing materials for this industry eliminates the buildup of bacterial biofilms, as well as keeping the equipment free of contaminants like Salmonella. Electropolishing delivers the level of sanitation required by a number of regulatory agencies.
From robotics to mobile equipment, the uses of electropolishing in the hydraulics and pneumatics industry are many. By helping prevent premature part failure, electropolishing reduces downtime and increases the life cycle of these components.
Improving conductivity and performance is just one benefit electropolishing offers for electronics parts. The surface finish is improved by as much as 50%, removing imperfections from the material without material removal.
ASPSS is a unique venue in the US and offers a matchmaking event dedicated to surface treatment and finishing capabilities for aerospace manufacturing. The event focuses on chemical processes, heat treatment, materials testing, surface enhancement and related services.
