We offer several different Mixed Metal Oxide (MMO) coatings and anode geometries for concrete protection and for conventional protection. Impressed current cathodic protection anodes are a long-term solution to corrosion problems and are recognized as a superior alternative to sacrificial anodes.

MMO coated Titanium Impressed Current Cathodic Protection anodes (ICCP Anodes) are used in various environments, including seawater, brackish water, fresh water, carbon backfill, and concrete and can be used to protect industrial steel structures, such as pipelines, underground storage tanks, above ground storage tanks, locks, dams, offshore platforms, water boxes and steel re-enforced concrete structures.

MMO Titanium ICCP anodes are composed by a substrate of pure Titanium, chosen for its lightweight, strength and mechanical properties and are offered in many shapes like wires, tubes, ribbon and grids.

ICCP MMO Titanium Anode

Titanium substrate (base material) is activated by a coating of rare metal oxides (mainly Iridium and Ruthenium). This coating is deposited on Titanium’s surface and oxidized with a thermal treatment that makes it extremely stable and adherent. This coating acts like a catalyst for the chemical reaction of chlorine and oxygen evolution, making MMO anodes almost insoluble.

We offer Iridium oxide (IrO2) based MMO Coated ICCP anodes for all cathodic protection applications. Ruthenium based MMO for highly chlorinated environments (seawater).

ICCP Platinized Titanium Anode

Platinized anodes when used for anodes in aqueous media such as seawater, the titanium forms a stable layer of insulating oxide film on the surface that is stable below a certain breakdown voltage, thus preventing a current flow between the aqueous media and the anode. In the marine environment, the oxide formed on titanium is able to withstand 12 volts, beyond which the insulating barrier breaks down and current flow starts the corrosion process.

Seawater applications: Platinized titanium is predominantly used as an anode material for the cathodic protection of seafaring ships, particularly for corrosion prevention of the hull and its components, including rudders, pumping systems, rotating parts, propellers, piping, submerged parts and structures, ballast tanks, dock system structures and cargo tanks.

Underground applications: Platinized titanium anodes are used in cathodic protection systems for underground storage tanks, pipes, tank bottoms, cable sheaths and structures buried under corrosive soil. (Learn more about the corrosive effects of soil in An Introduction to Soil Corrosion.)

Oil and gas applications: Platinized titanium anodes and tantalum anodes are being used in cathodic protection systems to protect piping, casings, sucker rods and aboveground storage tanks from corrosion.

Sewage systems, water supply systems and reinforced concrete structures : Platinum on titanium anodes are used in the cathodic protection systems of sewage treatment plants, water supply infrastructure and steel reinforced structures.
