Stainless steel electrolytic polishing
This is a metal removal process in which stainless steel is used as the anode in the electrolyte and metal is removed from the surface after energization. This process is often used for the machining of parts because their shape is difficult to polish using conventional methods. The process is commonly used on the surface of cold-rolled steel because its surface is smoother than that of hot-rolled steel. However, electrolytic polishing will make the surface of the more obvious impurities, in particular, titanium and niobium-stabilized materials due to granular impurities so weld zone differences.
Small welding scars and sharp edges can be removed by this process. The process focuses on the protrusions on the surface, preferentially dissolving them. Electrolytic polishing process is immersed in stainless steel heated liquid, liquid ratio involves many proprietary and patented technology. Austenitic stainless steel electrolytic polishing effect is very good.
