  • Greater ease of cleaning

  • Enhanced heat transfer

  • Passivation

  • Enhanced brightness

  • Reduced friction loss



Characteristics of electropolished surfaces


Maximum cleanability: It has been demonstrated that a surface, even with an Ra ten times higher than a mirror finish, can be cleaned with the same ease.

Minimal adherence: It is utilized for the interior of reactors where polymerization processes take place and in heat exchangers, where fouling is delayed or sometimes even entirely avoided.

Maximum amount of reflected light: Thanks to the elimination of pores and imperfections.

Maximum corrosion resistance: Thanks to the absence of cracks, crevices, and pollutants, as well as the austenitic structure of equiaxed grains, electropolished stainless steel exhibits the best characteristics to withstand corrosion.

Inspection: Electropolishing is an inspection tool where pores, cracks, and imperfections, which are easily concealed with mechanical polishing, come to light.

Excellent passivation: Apart from being an ideal quality for food, pharmaceutical products, and high-purity gases, it is an indispensable characteristic for prostheses and implants.

Increased lifespan: It's ideal for parts subject to fatigue, such as springs, thanks to the elimination of microcracks.

Deburring: Electrical current selectively concentrates on protusions.

Minimum friction: Specific roughness averages (Ra) can be required, measurable before or after electropolishing.


Economic benefits of electropolishing


  • Extended lifespan

  • Less maintenance

  • Reduced cleaning and sterilization time

  • More cost-effective compared to other alloys
