Subcontract Processing Services

  • In-house & on-site subcontract services for cleaning, pickling, passivating and eletropolishing of stainless steel.
  • Projects carried out across the UK and Europe.
Eletropolishing - Electropolishing is in effect, Electroplating in reverse. Instead of depositing a coating of another material on a surface, the process of Electropolishing is to remove a surface layer, typically 20-40 micro-meters in depth in the case of Stainless Steel.

Pickling - The most cost-effective method for obtaining a clean passive surface on Stainless Steel is by immersion pickling in our own formulated solution of dilute acids. Anopol has extensive pickling and passivating facilities. Additionally, Anopol can supply all the necessary equipment, including water treatment, together with the necessary chemicals to those companies wishing to carry out in-house pickling and passivation, or provide resources and trained personnel to complete onsite surface treatment for customers. Cleaning, pickling and passivating products are available in liquid and gel / paste form.
Passivating - A clean Stainless Steel surface will generate it'sown passive oxide layer when exposed to oxygen. It is this oxide layer that gives stainless steels their corrosion resistant properties. owever it is possible to accelerate the formation of this layer by chemical passivation. ANOPOL has extensive pickling and passivating facilities at its Birmingham and Bordon, Hampshire facilities. Additionally, ANOPOL can supply all the necessary equipment, including water treatment, together with the necessary chemicals, to those companies wishing to carry out their own pickling and passivation.
