Abstract Stainless steel require modification of their surface to prevent them from rusting. Electrochemical methods of surface modification of stainless steel offers a better solution. Electropolished stainless steel surfaces obtained from various ethanolamine based acid baths were compared with mill finished stainless steel. The corrosion resistance evaluation by Tafel extrapolation and salt spray test revealed that electropolishing offered a better protection than mill finished stainless steel. The triethanol amine based bath offered a good corrosion resistant surface
