Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the surface properties and corrosion behavior of Co-Cr alloys ground by employing Electrolytic In-process Dressing (ELID) grinding; this evaluation was carried out by abrading the alloy surfaces using ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). The evaluation results showed that ELID grinding can be used to perform mirror finishing on Co-Cr alloys. ELID grinding also showed its ability to create a stable modified layer which improves corrosion wear characteristics on the workpiece surface.
