Remove Imbedded & Surface Contaminants with Electropolishing

Jan 28, 2015 2:00:45 AM

If metal surfaces are kept clean and have a sufficient supply of oxygen to maintain their protective layer, they will usually maintain resistance to imbedded and surface contaminants for some time. However, corrosion can always occur with the severity dependent on how stable the environment is.

How Does Electropolishing Refine Rough Surfaces?

Imperfections in the surface of a metal part can create a variety of problems, from premature failure as a result micro cracks to corrosion. Electropolishing is well suited for eliminating these flaws and preventing these results from occurring. During electropolishing, the transfer of metal ions occurs most quickly on the edges or corners of metal parts. The density of the electrochemical power is most concentrated on the high points of the object. This explains how electropolishing (often referred to as “reverse plating”) quickly removes metal at these points. Following is a more in-depth process overview.
