Anode Insulators - Essential Protection for Anodes from Bending
Protecting Anodes from Bending and Ensuring a Longer Lifespan
When electroplating a metal, such as copper, an anode is attached to the surface. Anode insulators add rigidity to the anode, preventing it from warping or bending and thus reducing the occurrence of nodules, or bumps, on the copper plate.
If left unchecked, these nodules can contact the anode and cause a short-circuit, leading to a costly and time-consuming replacement. That’s where Filatquip anode insulators make a difference.
Our premium anode insulators provide superior anode hardness, meaning less anode wear and tear thereby increasing the lifespan of the anode.
Additionally, higher anode hardness means that less anode material needs to be replaced over time. This not only saves our clients money, but also reduces the amount of anode waste that needs to be disposed of – great news for both budgets and the environment!
Moreover, with an anode insulator in place, clients have reported higher copper yields with improved consistency. Thanks to the increased structural integrity of the anode, the copper plating process is smoother and more reliable than ever before.
To summarize, Filatquip anode insulators offer unrivalled protection from short-circuiting, longer anode lifespans, reduced replacement costs and improved copper yields – all while reducing environmental waste. What more could you ask for?
