Comments Off on Electropolisher Machine Stainless Steel Weld Clean

Welding of stainless steels affects the chromium density of the surface which leads to poor appearance and subsequent corrosion when left untreated. There are a few way to clean up post weld and if you do a lot of stainless welding you want to avoid that nasty pickling paste process and invest in an electropolishing machine.

Why the machine, well,┬áthe best way to post-weld finish stainless steel is by electropolishing, which for those not in the know is an electrochemical process that rebuilds chromium throughout the weld surface by increasing it’s density and as a result restores the chromium’s ability to create an oxide film.
