MicroPolish II and MicroPolish are two inhibited deoxidizers formulated for titanium and titanium alloys including Nitinol. Each product acts as a cleaner/deoxidizer and slow chemical polish effective in removing surface metal oxides but only slowly etching base metals. Of the two polishes, MicroPolish II is slightly less aggressive. Overall, the etch rates are low for both polishes when compared to traditional deoxidizing chemistries. They are particularly suitable for applications where avoiding dimensional and weight losses is of critical importance (for example in devices utilizing fine wires).
