Expertise of Multiple Metals and Alloys

Electro-Glo Distribution has extensive experience in the field of electropolishing chemistry, offering support for a wide spectrum of metals and metal alloys.

Manufacturing Industries We Support

Medical and Dental

Electropolishing is a one-use treatment that results in biocompatible, safe and ultra clean parts. Medical manufacturers choose us to help reduce drag on sutures, needles and scalpels and trust our process to provide metal surfaces that can resist bacteria growth.

Defense and Aerospace

Electro-Glo’s metal finishing services reduce fatigue on metal parts used in high-stress environments. Improve aerodynamics, and reduce resistance, friction and corrosion with smoother metal surfaces.

Automotive and Consumer Goods

Many consumer appliances are manufactured using 400-series stainless steel alloys. Electropolishing will remove the outermost layer of parts to improve the durability, longevity and hygiene of your products by reducing soil and bacteria retention, and making items easier to clean and withstand stress.

Pharmaceutical

Hygiene is critical when manufacturing pharmaceutical products. Electropolishing can smooth and prevent metals from retaining residues or contaminants hazardous for human contact or consumption.

Food and Beverage

Electropolishing metals that come into contact with food and beverage products is essential to prevent the spread of bacteria and contamination. Electropolishing metals used in food and beverage production prevents trace residues and harmful bacteria being passed on to the consumer. This naturally improves the sanitation of your facility through preventative treatment of your metals.

Electronics

When manufacturing electronic equipment, the resistivity of your device’s metals is hugely important. Electropolishing improves conductivity and performance of metals used in electronic devices and circuitry by removing imperfections that create resistance on a microscopic level without affecting fragility.

Electropolishing Applications

Vacuum chambers

Increases life, value, and working efficiency of vacuum chambers.
