Pt Ti Mesh Circular anodes for gold electroforming

Platinised anodes are manufactured with a titanium or niobium base structure, in the form of either expanded metal, sheet, rod, wire or tube. A thin coating of platinum or layer of platinum between 2 to 5 microns thick is maintained on these various shaped anodes made-ready for metal finishing at plating baths. These platinum coated-or-plated anodes posses the electro-chemical properties of platinum and behaves like platinum metal. Platinized plating anodes coating/ layer thickness ranges from minimum 1.5 µ & max 20 µ.

Platinized metal anodes are widely used as a critical part for various applications including - Hard chrome plating (piston rings, printing cylinders, etc.) - Precious and non- precious metal electroplating - Electronics and semiconductor industry - Chemical process engineering- Electroplating - Electro dialysis - Electroforming (Conforming anodes) - Electrochemical Sensing - Electro winning and Metal recovery (Refining of metals) - Electrolytic Regeneration of chromic acid - Electroplating for precious and base metals - Electrolytic recovery for precious and base metals - Sodium Hypochlorite production electrolytic cells - Electro synthesis of organic and inorganic chemicals - Cathodic Protection applications includes Impressed Current Cathodic Protection.
