electropolishing propellers

I have some Stainless steel propellers that need polishing.

Would electropolishing have negative effects on the propellers? - thinking especially on the sharpness of the cupped edges.

I think no, but it depends on the intensity of the process offcourse.. electropolishing SS will only top off the sharp edges on the profile.... We also use it in the pharma, for having a clean surface to prevent bioburden.
