Sacrificial Anodes

While we are continually developing ever more innovative and sustainable anti-fouling and corrosion products and solutions, we also serve companies that choose traditional solutions such as sacrificial anode other cathodic protection systems, such as ICCP.

What is sacrificial anode cathodic protection?

In existence for over a century, sacrificial anode cathodic protection is a method used to protect valuable metal structures from corrosion.

When two metals are electrically connected in an electrolyte, such as
seawater, the more active metal (or ‘anode’) supplies a current and dissolves (or ‘sacrifices’), thereby protecting the other metal.

At risk metal structures are therefore protected if they are connected to a galvanic or sacrificial anode that consists of a more active metal, usually magnesium, aluminum and zinc alloys.

What are the main advantages of using sacrificial anode cathodic protection systems?

As sacrificial anodes are cast with high-efficiency alloys, they are lightweight, have a high amperage output and can function economically and efficiently without any maintenance throughout the operating period or need of an external power source. That means no added labor costs or extra electrical supply post-installation.

“Our sacrificial anode protection systems stand the test of time, meaning you have more time to focus on what really matters.”
