Electropolishing is an electrochemical process which smooths the surface of mainly stainless steel components of various grades. It is often described as the reverse of electroplating. It is used to uniformly polish the surface of parts. It is designed to replace traditional mechanical techniques inc grinding, milling and polishing.
It might be used in industries such as medical and healthcare due to its ability to provide a clean and smooth surface at a microscopic level. It can also polish inaccessible areas where mechanical techniques might struggle.
