An ideal protective barrier for freshwater boat metal components, magnesium boat anodes (also known as sacrificial anodes) are an essential part of boat maintenance, as they prevent the galvanic corrosion of boat metals that are submerged underwater.
Take a look below for our full range of magnesium anodes for boats and further information about our products.
Magnesium Anodes For Boats
Magnesium anodes are suitable for freshwater boats. This is because the alloy tends to protect submerged metals such as aluminium parts better.
Please note that if an magnesium boat anode is exposed to saltwater, the alloy will react more rapidly. It will also result in a different electrochemical reaction being caused that will cause the creation of hydrogen under the paint of the metal drive surface. Additionally, with a magnesium anode, you can benefit from a reduced loss rate due to lower circuit potential.
We supply magnesium anodes for various areas of your boat, including engine, propeller, hanging, propeller shaft, rudder, and magnesium hull anodes. These can be quickly and easily installed with the help of welds, brackets or bolts. With a properly affixed anode, the lifespan of your vessel hull can be increased significantly.
