Material Properties - EP Finish Stainless Steel
Gloster's electropolished (EP) finish is offered as a premium alternative to our standard brushed finish or for furniture used in coastal environments.
Electropolishing is widely used in the electronics, food and medical industries and on components for cruise ships and yachts, where a corrosion resistant, smooth and easy to maintain surface is of vital importance. Electropolishing is an electrochemical process whereby the combination of an electrical current and a strong acid erodes the surface of the stainless steel substrate atom by atom. This process removes much of the iron from the surface of the steel, but leaves the chrome intact, resulting in more shiny, but much improved corrosion resistant surface.
Cleaning - EP Finish Stainless Steel
Despite EP stainless steel being largely resistant to corrosion, in time brown spots may still appear on the stainless steel surface. These deposits can be removed using Gloster's Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polisher, which cleans and restores the new look of EP stainless steel furniture and makes the surface repellent to both dirt and water.
With all our standard and EP finish stainless steel products we include a Scotchbrite pad. If any brown spots appear on the stainless steel they can be easily cleaned by gently rubbing the surface of the steel, in the direction of the brushed finish, with the Scotchbrite pad. We advise that EP finish items are not rubbed excessively in this way as there is a risk of removing the EP finish.
