Benefits of Electropolishing

Deburring – Electropolishing removes performance-inhibiting surface burrs even from delicate and intricate parts.

Microfinishing – Removing scale, oxides, chemicals and surface irregularities, electropolishing improves part performance, even for parts that can’t be treated by vibratory finishing or mechanical polishing.

Corrosion resistance – Electropolishing improves corrosion resistance by eliminating the surface imperfections that serve as initiation sites.

Fatigue life improvement – We eliminate micro-cracks and other surface defects on metal parts like springs that bend, twist and flex before they can compromise performance.

Ultracleaning and decorative – Electropolishing gives metal parts a clean, bright finish  that lasts, helping metal parts retain a like-new appearance.
