Process of electropolishing

Steel electropolishing is an electrochemical process that removes a controlled amount of material from the outer layer. Removing this material eliminates surface imperfections, contaminants, sharp edges and burrs that could lead to corrosion.

The surface that is obtained is smooth, highly resistant to corrosion and free from imperfections that could compromise the strength and longevity of the stainless steel item.

How we support our customers

Through its internal research and development department, Alticolor devised and optimised a special electropolishing process designed to protect steel items used in the marine environment for a customer operating in that industry.

Alticolor treatments undergo rigorous control procedures
resulting in certification to guarantee the quality
of the process management.
