Our Products

Anodes

Whether extruded or hand-cast in our wide range of alloys and configurations, each of our anodes go through the same process to produce a fine grain structure essential for even plate-out and maximum throwing. We manufacture custom anodes for a range of applications:

  • Hard Chrome Plating
  • Decorative Chrome Plating Anodes
  • Anodizing
  • Tin & Solder Electroplating
  • Galvanizing
  • Metallizing
  • Lead Plating Anodes
  • Basket Anodes
  • Tin Lead Anodes

Alloys

Find below a list of the raw metals that we alloy with to produce any configuration you require.

  • Tin (Sn):  Complies to ASTM B339 – Grade “A” Tin.
  • Lead (Pb):  Complies with ASTM B29 – Corroding Grade Lead.
  • Antimony (Sb):  Complies with ASTM B237 – Grade “B” Antimony.
  • Cadmium (Cd):  Complies to ASTM B440
  • We also produce alloys with additions of Silver (Ag), Bismuth (Bi), and Aluminum (Al).

Whether extruded or hand-cast in our wide range of alloys and configurations, each of our anodes go through the same process to produce a fine grain structure essential for even plate-out and maximum throwing.

We also produce Lead anodes with cores such as copper, milled steel, and aluminum to name a few. They are either screwed or threaded into the hook, and plugged at the bottom.

All our Lead Alloyed Anodes are available with either Cast Bronze or Copper Hooks, which are cast into nobbins and lead-burned onto the anode stock. (All nobbin & burning bar used in homogenous bonding are of the same alloy as the anode stock).

Tin Anodes are supplied drilled with a 3/8″ Diameter hole and tapped (16 thread) to 1-1/4″ deep.

We regularly sell grid anode panels, however we also specialize in fabricating basket and custom-conforming grid anodes to meet your requirements.

We want to make sure you get the best bang for your money – a custom conforming or non-conforming grid anode can save you thousands of dollars and man-hours. Instead of using multiple different anodes to apply the chrome evenly and efficiently, a single custom conforming anode can apply an even distribution all at once.

We can integrate any size copper leads into your anode, in any formation for connecting to your buss bar.

Reliance Sacrificial Anodes from Alchemy Extrusions Inc., are made to meet or exceed military specifications, including MIL-A-18001, the accepted authority used by governments of both Canada and the USA.
