Anomet Products offers a line of platinum-clad rod, wire and mesh anodes that are designed to handle high current output and that are dimensionally stable for longer life. Platinum Clad Anodes are metallurgically bonded to provide increased durability and performance over electroplated anodes in electrochemical and metal finishing processes. Clad to niobium or titanium, these anodes are available with or without a copper core for enhanced conductivity.
Ductile and formable, the anodes work with a range of electrolytes and, unlike lead and other consumable anodes, they will not contaminate the bath and are environmentally friendly, Anomet says. Platinum thickness can range from 10 to 600 microinches, depending upon the application; wire and rod can range from 0.021" to 1" in diameter, and woven mesh can be 24" wide.
