MMO Coated Titanium Anode for Metal Electroplating

MMO Coated Titanium Anode for Metal Electroplating

In electroplating industry, the metal to be plated is dissolved in the electrolyte and the object to be plated is cathodically polarised. With the anodically polarised anodes, the electrical loop is closed. The counter reaction in the plating bath is oxygen evolution at the anode surface.

Anodes used in electroplating divided into soluble anode and insoluble anode.For soluble anode, such as graphite anode and lead anode, lead dissolving in the electrolyte introduced additional hazardous substances such as lead chromate and lead oxide into the electroplating line. The inter electrode gap increase when graphite anode slowly dissolves, it significantly affects the product quality constant and cell voltage.

UTron has design a novel Nano-sized Mixed Metal Oxide Titanium Anode for electroplating, its remains constant inter electrode gap throughout the design life. This maintains constant voltage and product quality.  It is proven to have lower anodic operating potentials, which is helpful for energy saving. The titanium substrate is possible to be used, when the anode coating has reached its operating life, UTron can offer recoating service after cleaning.
