Electropolishing is a surface treatment by which the metal polishing acts as an anode in an electrolytic cell, dissolving.

The mayor advantage of stainless steel is that, as a metal iron is readily dissolved, the contents of Chromium and Nickel at the surface increases, thus increasing corrosion resistance.

Electropolishing on stainless steel can increase the corrosion resistance because the process allows to remove the surface layers formed by rolling work and polishing, leaving on the finished a layer of Chromium oxides and Nickel extremely thin and transparent surface that gives him excellent passivity in relation to many chemical reagents.

The range of stainless steel ladders offered by Flexinox is manufactured by this process, providing strength and durability to their users.
