Cadmium Free Anode Range By Martyr


cadmium free logo for martyr anodes

To date there is a small amount of Cadmium used in the production of most zinc anodes. On the whole, most regulators claim it poses “no threat” to the environment. However the Martyr range of anodes has been produced to recognise that the “perception” of a Cadmium containing alloy is of concern for many customers.

CMP, the manufacturers of the Martyr II Aluminum and Martyr III Magnesium anodes, can categorically confirm that the anodes contain no Cadmium at all.


Benefits of Martyr Cadmium Free Anodes:

  • In addition to being environmentally friendly, the Martyr II Aluminum and Martyr III Magnesium Cadmium Free anodes are much lighter than the traditional zinc anode that they replace. Resulting in significant savings of fuel to transport and energy to install.
  • The improved efficiency and performance of Cadmium Free Martyr II Aluminum Anodes results in longer life and improved corrosion protection thereby reducing the quantity of anodes required and increasing the time between replacements.
  • The alloy components of our Martyr II Aluminum anode contain no cadmium and only a fraction of the zinc used in making traditional zinc anode. The two remaining components, Aluminum and Indium are non-toxic.

CMP produce Cadmium Free anodes that perform in all three (boating) water types. Which is good news for the range we offer our more stringent customers.

New anode kits for the new boating season


Here at Anode Outlet we’re always thinking of ways to save you both time and money. We now have in stock several new anode kits that will help you do just that.

So when you’re selecting your hull anode for the next boating season, look no further than our range of new hull anode kits. The kits come with a backing pad, zinc plated fixing nut and zinc plated overlapping serrated washer.

If you’re installing your anode from scratch then you can still buy the anode separately as well as the zinc plated studs for each type of hull. We also supply high quality bonding cable to ensure an excellent electrical bond between the anode and the engine. You’ll also find fitting instructions for our anodes as well as downloads on everything you need to know about sacrificial anodes. There is also advice on steps you can take to get the best out of your anodes and improve the overall protection of your boat.

If you already have the studs installed and you’re refreshing the anode for the new boating season, save yourself time and money by selecting the kit version of our most popular hull anodes. These hull anode kits come with everything you need to install the new anode with a fresh backing pad, nuts and washers. The zinc plated serrated washers ensure a good bonding connection to the anode for the whole season. Ideally they should be replaced along with the anode every year to maintain …

Anode Outlet launches new sacrificial anodes kits for 2012


As promised in our blog about new specialist anodes from Anode Outlet, we have news of our new anode kits.
We have three new anode kits designed to help prevent your boat being damaged by corrosion and your wallet by expensive repairs.

We have the new Alpha 1 Generation 1 Mercruiser anode kit and two new Volvo anode kits: DPH drives and SX-A/DPS drives.

We also have a range of new saildrive anodes: the Yanmar split ring anode for drives with an adaptor ring; the Yanmar anode for drives without an adaptor ring; and the Volvo 3-piece propeller anode.

If you’re not sure which anodes your boat requires, you can use our handy search tool to find out. It’s very easy to use and offers instructions for searching for both engine anodes and hull anodes. Different waters require different anodes, and specific anodes are recommended for certain types of boat, so it’s important you get the right information.

Anode Outlet anodes now available across Europe


Map of EuropeAfter marking our first birthday with some modest celebrations (no one had to walk the plank or was thrown overboard – far too cold for that!), we’re down to the serious business of achieving another good year at Anode Outlet and we’re starting by casting our net into Europe.

Having successfully crossed the channel into France in 2011, we have decided to broaden our horizons: Anode Outlet now delivers all of our sacrificial anodes – hull anodes, engine anodes, anode kits, etc. – across Europe.

Online anode orders can be shipped to customers in all 27 countries in the EU, in addition to Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Gibraltar, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Moldova, Monaco, Norway and Serbia.

Anode Outlet celebrates its first birthday!


We ended 2011 with a competition on Twitter to win a boat (congratulations @SailBoatSailing) and we’re starting off 2012 with more celebrations as Anode Outlet marks its first birthday. It has been 12 whole months since we set sail and already it has been quite some voyage!

While we’re going to resist crashing a bottle of something fizzy against the office wall, we are going to raise a toast or two to a year of Anode Outlet and online sacrificial anode sales. But before we do that, I want to share some of our anode-related achievements and targets with you.

Since the good ship Anode Outlet slipped into the water in January 2011, we have built up a UK-wide anodes customer base. Our unique anode search tool is proving very popular and we are regularly shipping engine anodes and hull anodes throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We’ve also crossed the Channel into France, Italy, Jersey and Malta.

Looking ahead, we plan to add more video content to our website. Presenting information on sacrificial anodes, cathodic protection and related topics in a way that everybody can understand has been a big hit and we’re going to develop this area. We’re also going to expand our anode fitting instructions page with How to… videos.

Customer feedback has been an important tool in terms of development and we’ll continue to improve the website in this way, with a particular focus on building our knowledge base customer resource. We’ll also continue …
