Introduction of Electro-polishing for Stainless Steel

Electro-polishing has played a crucial role in stainless steel industry. Known as electrochemical polishing or electrolytic polishing as well, it is a process for deburring and polishing of stainless steel items. That is to say, it is an electrochemical process that removes material from a metallic workpiece. It is widely used to polish, passivate, and deburr metal parts.
Electro-polishing possesses the following advantages:
1. Consistant and durable lustre inside and outside
2. High working efficiency
3. Low costs
4. Enhancing corrosion resistance of the surface of workpieces, suitable for all kinds of stainless steel materials.
In addition, electro-polishing can take the place of manual polishing processes using grinders or lathes, which saves the costs more or less. More importantly, It can add lustre to the surface and improve the visual attraction and smooth feel of the product. It will not change the color of stianless steel, in turn, it can make the surface much brighter.
The applications of electro-polishing in the metal finishing industry are very wide due to its simplicity. It can be applied to objects of complex shape. Electropolished stainless steel drums of washing machines and stainless steel surgical devices are the typical examples. It can be also applied to the preparation of thin metal samples for transmission electron microscopy because it does not cause mechanical deformation of surface layers.
As far as I'm concerned, electro-polishing is really very significant for stainless steel. The effect is very evident, and the function is very great.
