Wire Rack Electropolishing

Stainless steel wire racks commonly undergo electropolishing in order to achieve decorative appearances, as well as clean, passive surfaces for sanitary applications.

How Does Wire Rack Electropolishing Work?

Electropolishing is a “reverse plating” process in which a combination of electrical current and chemicals remove the outer layer of a metal part. To give your shelves an electropolished finish, electropolishers submerge the metal parts in a chemically charged solution that creates a uniform, bright and clean surface.

Wire racks are commonly electropolished for increased longevity and aesthetics. When you have your metal shelves finished with electropolishing, you can effectively remove weld discolorations and improve corrosion resistance. Because businesses often use racks that come into contact with food, beverages, pharmaceuticals and other products, they require passive and sanitary surface finishes. By electropolishing wire racks, you’ll be able to effectively remove embedded and surface contaminants and eliminate potential initiation sites for corrosion. In addition, the smooth surface will increase cleanability and reduce the chance of cross-contamination.
