The electroplating industry has complex and varied requirements. To help protect from corrosion and contamination, the lead lining of tanks can be an excellent preventive measure due to its chemical resistance in these environments. The anodes used in the electroplating process must be of a high-quality and selected with precision based on the specific application. Lead and lead alloy anodes are cost effective, particularly in the initial phases of a project that requires electroplating. The needs of the application will dictate which format will be most appropriate from available options such as basket, grid, cored stick, stick, and plate anodes. Canada Metal North America also supplies zinc balls for use in zinc electroplating applications.
