Zinc Hull Anodes
Our excellent range of zinc hull anodes will keep your boat hull protected by corroding and 'sacrificing' themselves. As zinc is a far more reactive metal than that of your hull, galvanic corrosion will target the anode, instead of your hull.
Because of their density and structural composition, zinc anodes offer significantly better impact strength, in comparison with magnesium hull anodes and aluminium hull anodes, which can be critical in some marine environments. In addition, zinc anodes provide a more even decay across the anode.
We also sell an excellent range of zinc hanging anodes, which are a great option if you're looking to provide your hull with some extra protection whilst your vessel is moored.
Bolt On vs Weld On Magnesium Hull Anodes:
When purchasing a zinc hull anode, you'll have a choice of two options - bolt on or weld on, but what's most suitable for your requirements?
Zinc bolt-on hull anodes are a quick and effective way to secure anodes without the need for specialist tools. It's highly recommended you use the best-quality anode fixing bolts if bolting on hull anodes. In comparison, zinc weld on hull anodes are suitable for vessels where a long life span is required, or where anodes are subjected to significant vibration, agitation, abrasion or other physical impact.
