Get Fantastic Results Through Our Time-Tested Process
High Performance Metal Finishing uses a proprietary electropolishing process, using our tank that is specially designed for the job, much like our anodizing and electroplating processes. We mount the parts on a rack or jig, then move the parts from tank to tank, following the same routine every time for every client to get consistent results on every job we do.
The metal we are electropolishing needs to be free from any contaminants, like oils, lubricants, dirt, fingerprints, or anything else that could compromise the quality of the project. To do this, we may use vapor, solvent immersion, alkaline cleaning, acid soak cleaning, or other processes to completely remove anything from the metal surface before proceeding with electropolishing procedure.
Once the surface of the metal is completely cleaned of contaminants, we can begin the extensive process of electropolishing the metal to smoother, deburr, brighten and passivate it properly. This process can also result in stress relief, reduction of friction, hygienic cleaning, and improved resistance to corrosion in the metal.
With the electropolishing process completed, all by-products and chemical residues need to be removed from the metal surface, which will not only ensure the surface is in perfect condition, but will also speed up the drying process.
All parts that have been electropolished and gone through the post treatment process will then be moved into our clean room where the parts can be dried completely without the worry of them becoming contaminated.
This process will result in great looking metal due to a number of factors:
- Brightening & Superior Quality Surface Cleaning
- Burr Removal & Deburring
- Highly Reflective Surface
- Improved Smoothness & Sealing
- Sharpening of Instruments for Medical, Pharmaceutical, and Food Industries
- Total Passivation
- Oxide and Tarnish Removal
- Removal of Scale, Discoloration & Surface Occlusions
- Improved Adhesion in Subsequent Plating
- Removal of Directional Lines
- Radiusing of Sharp Edges
- Reduced Buffing, Grinding Costs & Surface Friction
- Stress Relieved Surface
- Removal of Hydrogen
- Less Corrosion
- Reduction in Surface Profile
- Increased Corrosion Resistance & Ratio of Chromium to Iron
