A Filatquip anode insulator prevents anodes from bending by providing rigidity. As a result of bending, nodules are created on the copper plates. In the event the nodules contact the anode, a short-circuit will result. Since the anode has better structural integrity than the insulator, it results in a longer lifespan for the anodes. It means that less led must be disposed of, which is beneficial for the environment. Clients have reported higher copper yields using our insulators.
