An Oxidising film naturally passivates the titanium substrate; the Titanium
remains dimensionally stable over time. Direct Current Transfer accomplished
through Mixed Metal Oxide catalyst which is highly conductive and fully
oxidized so that higher current outputs are possible.
The mixed metal oxide is a crystalline, electrically conductive coating that activates the titanium or niobium substrate and enables it to function as an anode. This coating has an extremely low consumption rate, measured in terms of milligrams per year. As a result of this low consumption rate, the anode dimensions remain nearly constant during the life of the anode, providing constant levels of performance for the duration of the anode design life. Due to the ductility of the titanium substrate, wide ranges of anode shapes suitable to the structure to be protected are possible, such as wire, rod, tubular, disk and mesh configurations.
