Metal Oxide coated Titanium anodes consist of a high purity titanium substrate with an applied coating consisting of a mixture of platinum group metal oxides. The titanium serves as a support for the oxide coating. The mixed metal oxide is a crystalline, electrically conductive coating that activates the titanium and enables it to function as an anode. When applied on titanium, the coating has an extremely low consumption rate, measured in terms of milligrams per year. As a result of this low consumption rate, the metal dimensions remain nearly constant during the design life of the anode – providing a consistently low resistance anode.
