Optimum Anode Technologies provides dimensionally stable anodes with a range of mixed-metal oxide coatings, including iridium, ruthenium, rhodium, platinum and proprietary oxide coatings, as well as platinum plated and clad material.

According to the company, dimensionally stable anodes have many benefits over traditional soluble anodes: They are cost-effective, environmentally friendly and improve the overall quality of a product. They are commonly used for plating of decorative trim, wheels and galvanized steel strip, as well as electrophoretic painting of components that encounter corrosion or high wear. They also are widely used in precious-metal plating of electronic components and jewelry, as well as the recovery of precious metals.
