Stainless Steel Electropolishing

Stainless steel electropolishing, often called reverse plating, is a pre-plate finishing service offered by Master Finish Company. Electropolishing removes various contaminants from the surface of stainless steel, leaving behind a higher concentration of nickel and chromium molecules at the part surface. The Electropolishing finishing process works hardest on the micro peaks of the surface, providing a smoother, brighter surface while improves corrosion resistance and appearance of the part.

How Electropolishing Works

Electropolishing works by an electro-chemical reaction in which metal dissolves faster at surface micro peaks, creating a leveling effect on the surface of the work piece. This process makes electropolishing an excellent option for deburring and general preparation of stainless steel surfaces prior to plating.
