FILIX will start with the implementation of different processes for our material finish on the Arpool Iris fixtures in the upcoming days, and in the coming months on all underwater fixtures.
The process will use finely glass blasted + electropolished finish that will give finely structured finish with extremely high anti-corrosive layer.
The reasons for these changes range from time improvment due to material handling in the factory to increase in quality that is expected from an underwater lighting solution specialist.
While passivation is useful for removing free iron and contaminants from stainless steel and is more well known, here’s what you should know about electropolishing:
Electropolishing is a one-stop process for a micro-smooth, ultraclean, corrosion and pathogen-resistant surface finish – with 30 times more corrosion resistance than passivation.
