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.

There are many advantages for electropolishing over other metal polishing methods including:

  • Superior corrosion resistance
  • Improved fatigue life
  • Reduced friction coefficient
  • More visually appealing

For this reason electropolishing is ideal for:

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