While CORROSION is always working to develop more effective and more sustainable products and solutions, we’ve got a firm footing on more conventional paths too.
Take sacrificial anodes. This is a more traditional method of achieving cathodic protection. We’ve got highly sophisticated, tried and true products. Our anodes stand the test of time. So far, we’ve got more than 25 years of experience. Real life experience. A reputation you can count on.
Sacrificial galvanic anodes have been around for more than 100 years. They’re known to work. Metal structures are protected when they’re connected to a more active metal or alloy. How? When two metals are electrically connected in an electrolyte ( such as seawater), the more active metal (anode) supplies a current and dissolves (sacrifices) to effectively protect the other metal (structures).
Sacrificial (galvanic) anodes are cast with high-efficiency alloys and are lightweight. They have a high amperage output. Anodes can function economically and efficiently without any maintenance during the operating period.. So, after installation they won’t require any additional labor costs or extra electrical supply.
