Harrison Electropolishing is a leading provider of electropolishing services for industrial and high purity industries. Our capabilities allow us to process components of all sizes. While most process equipment may fit within our electropolishing tanks, we have developed proprietary techniques in order to electropolish larger components.
Electropolishing is a reverse plating process, and instead of adding a coating to a part, surface imperfections such as impurities, and burrs, and other defects are removed. Parts are attached to a custom rack or basket and then lowered into a chemical bath where an electrical current is then applied to the part. The electropolishing process is monitored and refined to remove metal uniformly to customer specifications allowing great benefit on ultracleaning, microfinishing, and corrosion protection.
Advantages That Electropolishing Provides
Conventional mechanical finishing systems can often stress, bend, and even fracture a metal surface when attempting to achieve smoothness or luster. Electropolishing on the other hand removes metal from the surface, thus producing a microscopically smooth, and often highly reflective surface devoid of any unidirectional pattern, making it both stress and occlusion-free.
- Increased Resistance to Corrosion
- Improved Surface Finish
- Reduced Product Adhesion & Ease of Cleaning
- Attractive Appearance
