Electropolishing of stainless and tool steels
There are two processes: Electropolishing stainless steels and electropolishing tool steels. Electropolishing stainless steels is used primarily with components for the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The surface is cleaned, levelled and smoothed by removing a pre-defined amount. Electropolishing improves corrosion resistance of stainless steel and reduces and/or prevents the risk of contamination. Tool steels are electropolished mainly to reduce a surface's roughness and to restore its brightness.
