Performance Metals Products Sacrificial Anodes
DAM Marine is the distributor of Performance Metals anodes, manufacturer of high quality sacrificial anodes based in Pennsylvania.
The anodes are alloys corresponding to the military standard MIL-DTL-24779B(SH).The alloy is a mixture of aluminum, zinc and indium that gives better electrical protection and thus allows the anode to remain clean (ecological) and to wear regularly.Performance Metals is the only manufacturer including a wear indicator in their products.This alloy also allows anodes to be between 30 and 50% more effective than Zinc anodes.

Can\'t you find the anode you\'re looking for for your boat?\n
You can filter your results with the filters on the left, indicating the mark of your engine (Volvo Penta, Yanmar or others) and the model, so you will only see the anodes compatible with your boat\n
How do anodes work?\n
When two metals come into contact with each other and are immersed, the least noble metal has an electrical potential lower than that which is more noble.\n
This difference of potential generates an electric current between the two metals, from the noblest to the least noble.The flow of the current causes the ions to be dissolved in the water, resulting in the long-term dissolution of the noblest metal.\n
Watch out!Anodes must never be painted or scratched. This can cause them to lose their conductivity and thus mitigate their anti-corrosive effect.If the boat remains out of the water too long, an oxidation layer can form and cause a loss of performance.\n
There are magnesium, zinc and aluminium anodes.The metal of your anode requires to be more reducing than the metal to protect.Generally, we use the following:\n
- Magnesium anodes in fresh water\n
- Zinc or aluminium anodes for salt water\n

Choose anodes for your boat\'s hull:\n
- Tree nut anodes which are designed to protect your propeller tree.\n
- The rosace anodes to protect your saffron\n
- Tree anodes to protect your propeller\n
- Necklace anodes in general\n
When to change his sacrificial anode?\n
All ships have one or more anodes that must be changed regularly;they are used to protect the submerged metal parts of a boat;they are considered to change to each carnage (or more often in case of particular wear), so at least once a year.\n
An anode must be used: if at the time of carnage, you find your anode as new, it is not normal;electrolysis is required elsewhere.Check that the anode is in electrical contact with the metal part that it must protect.However, we must do attention to too fast wear of your anode, if the anode is too fast there may be a power loss, and in that case check if your propeller or propeller trees have not made the costs.\n
Attention: not paint the metal part in contact with the anode, it would make it ineffective.\n\n
Number of anodes depending on the metal surface to be protected:\n
|Metal surfaces in m2\n||Zinc anodes in kg\n|
|5 to 10m2\n||5.5 KG\n|
|10 to 20m2\n||9.5 KG\n|
|20 to 30m2\n||18 KG\n|
|30 to 40m2\n||20 KG\n|
|40 to 50m2\n||25 KG\n|
