    From the preface to Electropolishing Facts.

    When we apply voltage between anode and cathode in aqueous system, we normally get electrolysis, hydrogen forms at the cathode, oxygen at the anode. The voltage is about 2-3 volts and trial to increase it will result in augmenting electrolysis action. That is, the metal which comprises the anode is remaining in a fixed state either as a bare metal (in the case of noble or ennobled metal) or having an oxidized skin. To transform from electrolysis to electro polishing we need that oxidized skin to be formed and removed alternately, hence to act below oxygen production voltage. If electro polishing state is not reached, we conclude reasonably that voltage increase is needed to initiate it. So, what we do to start electro polishing and avoid oxygen production?
