Electro polishing (Super Passivation)- Adding electrical current in a tank environment with a passivation acid  to further smooth the metal surface while achieving passivation. The ultimate metal treatment for corrosion resistance.

Electrical current is applied in acid bath and create impulses 
against raised surfaces.

Current and acid work to clean and smooth surface developing a 
superior and uniform chromium oxide layer.
