The process tends to focus on stainless steels, it removes iron or iron oxide which can exist on the surface of stainless steel as contamination a machining process, grinding or fabrication.
After electropolishing, the metal is usually passivated in a solution of nitric acid which expels any remaining free iron without removing the chromium oxide or base metal. Areas such as cracks, holes or crevices that might not have been exposed to the electropolishing process become passivated.
