ELECTROPOLISH
Electropolishing is the controlled electro-chemical removal of surface metal, resulting in a brilliant appearance and improved properties. Sometimes described as "Reverse Plating", the process has a leveling effect, which produces smoothness and increased reflectivity. Most printed circuit board applications where heating de-ionized water is used in a "clean room" environment requires electropolished heating equipment.

More importantly, the outer layer of the metal is removed, leaving a passive surface free of imbedded contaminants and prevents corrosion in tank heaters, screwplug, flange, and circulation (in-line) heating applications. GLO-QUARTZ® offers electropolish as an option to prevent sludge build-up and provide a longer heater life.

The Benefits... The best effects are produced on stainless steel, but good results can also be obtained on nickel alloys. Benefits Include:

•Superior micro-finish
•Corrosion- resistance
•Lustrous appearance
•Burr removal
•Micro-sizing to close tolerances
•Cleanliness Detection of surface defects
•Extended fatigue life
•Reduced friction and galling
