Electropolishing, using stainless steel, obtains very specific properties. It reduces roughness in the micro range, but leaves structures at a larger scale. Edges and corners are removed to a greater extent, which results in a fine deburring across the entire surface area. Workpieces treated this way are far more resistant to corrosion. This gives electro-polished surfaces a very decorative finish, emphasizing the shiny character of the metal.
