We provide platinized titanium and platinized niobium anodes wherein the catalyst properties of platinum are combined with the mechanical robustness and corrosion resistance of titanium and niobium substrates.
These formulations are typically used in hard chrome plating and in applications taking advantage of the low anodic potential associated with platinum.
The substrate is entirely plated with platinum metal showing the high quality characteristics typical of De Nora DSA® anodes in terms of product durability.
De Nora DSA® platinum anodes are:
• Resistant to corrosion in aggressive electrolyte environments
• Uniform in platinum coating thickness
• Customizable according to customer’s specific design and geometry
The use of anodes prone to dissolution phenomena in electrodeposition of metals such as copper, tin, nickel and zinc tend to generate an excess of metal ion species in the plating solution. As the concentration of metal ions increase, plating quality can diminish forcing platters either to dummy plate or decant their plating baths in order to maintain an optimal metal ion concentration. In either case, additional costs are incurred due to lost production or supplementary waste treatment. An extremely cost -effective method for controlling metal ion growth is to replace a portion of the soluble anodes with De Nora DSA® anodes.
