Current polishing processes are plagued with poor energy efficiencies, high labour requirements, corrosive liquids and process induced embrittlement. Scionix's Ionic Liquids are easily to recycle, give off less gas during the process, thus improving working conditions and minimising extraction requirements. They also give a tenfold increase in energy efficiency.
Metal Polishing
All these improvements are in addition to the enhanced surface finishing. We are currently working with a UK based electropolisher to commercialise this technology.
We are able to electropolish many metals including stainless steel and nickel based alloys using a benign ionic liquids.
