Electropolishing with emphasis on design, environment and hygiene There are many benefits to using electropolishing. The method is effective for smoothing and streamlining surfaces in several different industries. For example, electropolishing can be used for polishing and grinding smaller products in the pharmaceutical industry. Electropolishing, involves the immersion of a piece of metal into a vessel, usually containing sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid. The temperature is normally above 50ºC. The item itself is connected anodically by means of a rectifier. During the process, the outer layer of the steel is slowly peeled off. This removes any roughness on the metal. In addition to stainless steel, this could also be aluminium, copper, nickel, titanium, carbon steel and nitinol.

After the metal has been dipped in the acid bath, not only are you left with an item with a strong, shiny surface. It is also more difficult for rust to form, as the polishing is so even and smooth. It is also harder for chloride, limescale and salt to settle. With electropolishing, it is easier to keep the material clean. The result is a uniform, glossy surface that is easy to maintain and has great strength.
