How Do You Finish Titanium? | Able

Titanium’s high tensile strength, natural corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, and resistance to high temperatures make it a popular choice for medical, aerospace and marine applications. Electropolishing titanium parts after manufacturing ensures that they are in the best condition possible before they are used.

Electropolishing titanium removes a uniform layer of surface metal—as little as .0001″ per surface. This strips away embedded contaminants, cracks and other imperfections that compromise corrosion resistance and can shorten the lifespan of a part. Electropolishing titanium is also used as an ultracleaning operation, because removing embedded contaminants and residual debris improves critical parts like surgical and dental implants and tools.
