Aluminium Anodes


Aberdeen Foundries 'DEFENDER' brand Aluminium marine anodes come in the widest range of sizes and are for use in all types of applications for protection of harbours and jetties, platforms, ships hulls, tanks, drill rigs and pipelines. Aluminium is popular as base metal prices and specific properties of aluminium-zinc-indium based anodes make them the best value for money in terms of the protection offered per kg of anode weight.

See our data sheets to select an anode of specific weight to suit your application or contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
