What Is Electropolishing?

One answer is that it’s a fascinating process. Electropolishing is the opposite of plating—an electrical current is applied in order to remove material instead of add it. The result is a fine, shiny surface finish.

Able Electropolishing produced this video to explain the electropolishing process, which is used for microfinishing, fatigue life improvement and even deburring in cases where the part is too delicate for more forceful finishing methods.
