The article offers information on the characteristics of metals parts finished through the process of electropolishing. It says that electropolished parts of materials including stainless steel are more resistant to oxidation, tarnish, and corrosion. It adds that electropolished surfaces are non-distorting and have improved weldability. It mentions that electropolishing works best in decorative finishing.
