Electropolishing Technology For A Wide Range Of Stainless Steels

AnoPolish is Anoplate’s proprietary electropolishing process for a variety of stainless steels, Invar, and Kovar.

Electropolishing, as its name implies, refers to chemical polishing of various metals in an acid solution using electricity. The process works by electrochemically removing high spots on the part, but on a micro-level. AnoPolish is typical results in a two-fold decrease in the surface finish of the part.

AnoPolish used on medically-invasive surgical instruments and bone plates to improve corrosion performance and sterilization ability.

AnoPolish can micro-deburr an edge (left), leaving the edge nice and smooth (right). By itself, AnoPolish is not a deburring process.

SPECIFICATIONS
