Electropolishing Stainless Steel

Electropolishing Stainless Steel

Capron Manufacturing provides first-rate electropolishing and passivation of stainless steel. Electropolishing is essentially a “reverse plating” technique that uses a combination of chemicals and electrical current to carefully remove surface imperfections and contaminants from metal parts rendering the surface smooth and shiny, while the structure and strength of the base component is retained.

Electropolishing of stainless steel is intended to achieve the following properties:

  • Superior corrosion resistance
  • Improved fatigue life
  • Reduced friction and abrasion
  • Smooth and bright surfaces
  • Optimal cleaning properties
  • Supreme weldability and solderability
  • Definite reduction of gas condensation
  • Lack of particles and pyrogen strength

The possible applications of electropolishing of stainless steel are various.  These include:

  • Medical & dental instruments
  • Automotive components
  • Home and industrial appliances
  • Pharmaceutical equipment
  • Aerospace
  • Cosmetics
  • Biotechnology

Our sophisticated techniques make it possible to achieve a unique look and feel that meets both decorative and functional requirements.
