Description

Aluminum anodes have long been used in the fight against corrosion. Applications for aluminum anodes include ship hulls, tank interiors, offshore structures, submerged pipelines, piers, pilings, etc.

ALOLINE aluminum anodes are designed for optimum performance under a variety of environmental conditions and temperature ranges. Cast in different sizes and weights, ALOLINE anodes provide maximum performance in seawater and brackish environments.
