UC Components, Inc. offers an electropolished finish for all our RediVac® screws, washers, and hex nuts. The electropolishing process carefully dissolves unwanted surface metals. It leaves behind the true base metal(s) of a component and significantly reduces surface burrs, chips, and peeling; which is especially important for threaded components. Electropolishing also greatly reduces surface particulate, improves corrosion resistance, helps reduce outgassing, and imparts a bright, chrome-like finish.
Although every plating and coating option that we offer is fully vacuum compatible, the ideal finish for your specific high vacuum application is best defined by your process engineer.
