Whether you're producing only a few parts or have a need for production volumes, we have the proper electropolish solution to meet your specific production need and industry standards. Some products require only a few microns of material removal, whereas some require a substantial amount of removal. Our experience spans many different electropolish applications so that we can help choose the best solution for your application.
Electropolishing Stainless Steels
Stainless steel alloys we electropolish currently include:
- 300 Series Stainless Steel: 300 Series stainless steels are classified as austenitic, and are hardenable only by cold working methods. These grades of stainless steel have chromium (approx. 18 to 30%) and nickel (approx. 6 to 20%) as their major alloying additions.
- 400 Series Stainless Steel: The 400 series group of stainless steels has an 11 percent chromium and 1-percent manganese increase, above the 300 series stainless steel group. The 400 series is susceptible to rust and corrosion under some conditions. Heat-treating will harden the 400 series. The 400 series of stainless steels have higher carbon content, giving it a martensitic crystalline structure. This provides high strength and high wear resistance. Martensitic stainless steels aren’t as corrosion resistant as the austenitic types
