Stainless Steel

Why should I electropolish stainless steel?

Electropolishing stainless steel is important to provide superior corrosion resistance and protect your steel from future pitting. All stainless steel materials can benefit from electropolishing. Not only does it provide important protection, electropolishing also improves parts cosmetically and provides an even, level surface.

Electropolishing is used for leveling the surface of most metals; often to eliminate harmful cross contamination sites in scratched or damaged surfaces. It requires a minimum of labor and if the conditions are right, can provide a spectacular surface finish. At first glance the leveling effect is important because it can, in many instances, improve the visual appearance of the part. Electropolishing’s real usefulness, however, is in the manner in which it smooths the part.

Hydrosol System’s electropolishing processes focus on cleaning of 300 series stainless steel. Hydrosol is equipped to perform electropolishing to three (3) specific grades dependent on customer requirements.  A Hydrosol Engineer will visit your facility and create a customized Electropolishing repair or new construction polishing plan.  Our plan will be deliberately designed to meet the specific needs of each customer and application.  A crew will mobilize during the agreed upon time and at either our facility or yours to complete the work.  All completed projects are completed with an electropolishing turnover report which includes project details which include surface profilometer results and passivation verification to validate component surface quality.
