Electropolishing is often referred to as a “reverse plating” process. Electrochemical in nature, electropolishing uses a combination of rectified current and a blended chemical electrolyte bath to remove flaws from the surface of a metal part.

Since the development of electropolishing in the 1950s, substantial refinements have taken place. Able has many electrolytes to allow for electropolishing on a broad range of metals. These newer electrolytes, combined with advanced parts handling techniques, have improved production yields on a wide range of metal products.

More recently, electropolishing has been utilized in many prototyping methods, including investment casting, photochemical machining, injection molding, laser cutting, metal stamping, 3D printing, direct metal laser sintering and electrical discharge machining. Following the electropolishing process, metal parts have improved microfinish value, an ultraclean surface and enhanced corrosion resistance.
