Electropolishing Consists by immersing a part in an electrochemical bath
Oxygen Versus Hydrogen
Stainless steel requires oxygen to naturally pacify itself. ough surfaces of stainless steel are prone to
an atmosphere around their surfaces of hydrogen in a marine environment, restricting the quantity of
oxygen close to the surface which restricts natural
We recommend most highly, a process utilized in Marine and Pharmaceutical Industries known as Electropolishing. Whence, through originally pacifying the metal
following construction the finished item be immersed in a special acid and electricity passed through it, through large electrodes. This method brings the chrome in the metal to the
surface, assisting the pacification of the alloy.
All stainless steel works outdoors within 20 km of the sea should be electropolished. We believe we can supply a fine product with
contrasting surfaces of satin like and highly polished surface by utilizing different surface types prior to electropolishing.
This would mean that we can guarantee against any
We could not guarantee no corrosion in the local

NOTE THE DIFFERENCE
Why Electropolishing in Middle EastBecause of the local atmospheric condition:
Effects Of Local Climate
BURJ KHALIFA Inox Arabia was requested to produce many stainless steel items at the Burj Khalifa site, we refused unless electropolishing was accepted as a specification Skidmore Owings and Merrill listened to our arguments and were convinced. We produced the required worksand we are very confident of the conclusions SOM or Emaar, Turner, Hyder and Proscape our contractors will give regarding the quality of our productsand the effectiveness ofelectropolishing
THE CONTRASTWithin the Middle East to visualize the effects and benefits of
Electropolishing, please visit the fountain walk from Dubai Mall to the
Burj Khalifa. At the fountain side, you will see stainless steel products installed by
another company that have not been electropolished On the right hand, around the Burj Khalifa, you will see a large stainless steel fence installed and produced by Inox Arabia that has been electropolished.
MADE BY INOX ARABIA
Corroded Stainless Steel 316L Brushed Finished not Electropolished
CONSEQUENCES WE NEVER PRODUCED THOSE PIPES, FOR THIS REASON We highly recommend that brush finish without electropolishing not to be used in any outside works as the grain of the finish attracts the pollutants in the air such as dust and salt to penetrate the surface very quickly. This
would greatly reduce the natural passivity of the stainless steel and assist corrosion to take place spoiling the work. ELECTROPOLISHING RESOLVES THIS.
A RELATIVE COST Electropolishing of components will not cost more than 20% of component cost to undertake. Inox Arabia has faced often difficulty in convincing customers of stainless steel products that electropolishing is required in any marine environment. The examples of corroding stainless steel in the marineenvironment of the Gulf Region are evidentfor all to see.Notably on the Burj Khalifa Dubai works that were not produced by Inox Arabia.
Inox Arabia on site Electro Polishing - We have developed Machinery and Technology for on site electro polishing. This technology of ours permits us to electro polish components for any size without dismantling them.We are currently awaiting patents forcomponents involved in this technology
Replacing the Bath with ElectrolyticalSpongesThe rectifier is a transportable machine along with the
voltage controller and heat controller all in one.
Thence the current pass to the cathodes with the

For smaller components and tighter corners
We have also designed an electrolytical brush
Different size and shape sponges are required for
components to limit differing finishes from
For larger and longer components we have designed a time

Thisis specialist work and staffs involved in operating its technology go through intense training in safety awareness, besides training in undertaking the Art of the Process. The product must be cleaned and pacified with Inox Eco Cleaner prior to electro polishing, at least 2 times with a surveillance period between each cleaning operation to evaluate the contamination of the product prior to electro polishing being under taken.Inox Arabia provide independent enhanced salinetesting results to warranty our products.
Electropolishing is used worldwide.Here is a list of our competitorsaround
