This Electrode Polishing Kit contains various polishing materials for routine cleaning, thorough cleaning and re-polishing for disk electrodes.

Application Note:

  1. Routine cleaning performed before every use
  • Remove the backing and stick the microcloth pad to glass plate; the pad can be re-used only with the same type (particle size) of alumina suspension;
  • Dispense a few droplets of alumina suspension 0.05 µm;
  • Polish the electrode surface while keeping the electrode surface parallel to the surface of the pad. Make a figure-8 pattern while slowly turning the electrode around its own axis;
  • Clean the electrode using brush and soap; rinse the electrode and the microcloth pad thoroughly with water.
  1. Thorough cleaning performed when the disk surface loses its shine and becomes dull
  • remove the backing and stick the nylon pad to any flat surface; the nylon pad can be re-used with any type (particle size) of alumina suspension;
  • Dispense a few droplets of alumina suspension 1 µm;
  • Polish the electrode surface while keeping the electrode surface parallel to the surface of the pad.  Make a figure-8 pattern while slowly turning the electrode around its own axis;
  • Clean the electrode and the nylon pad using brush and soap; rinse the electrode and the nylon pad thoroughly with water;
  • Remove the backing and stick the microcloth pad to glass plate; the pad can be re-used only with the same type (particle size) of alumina suspension;
  • Dispense a few droplets of alumina suspension 0.3 µm;
  • Polish the electrode surface while keeping the electrode surface parallel to the surface of the pad. Make a figure-8 pattern while slowly turning the electrode around its own axis;
  • Clean the electrode using brush and soap; rinse the electrode and the microcloth pad thoroughly with water;
  • Using a different microcloth pad devoted to alumina suspension 0.05 µm, perform polishing according to point 1. 
  1. Re-polishing of the disk electrode with a damaged surface
  • Remove the backing and stick the abrasive pad to any flat surface;
  • Polish the electrode surface while keeping the electrode surface parallel to the surface of the pad.  Make a figure-8 pattern while slowly turning the electrode around its own axis;
  • Clean the electrode using brush and soap; rinse the electrode thoroughly with water; dispose of the abrasive pad;
  • Using the nylon pad with alumina suspension 1 µm and two different microcloth pads devoted to alumina suspension 0.3 µm and 0.05 µm, perform polishing according to point 2.
