Marine bodyguards.

Our aluminum anodes offer predictable offshore performance.

Controlled rate of corrosion, a Kaiser Chemicals technological breakthrough, enables designers to predict performance and life of aluminum marine anodes KA90 and KA95 with a high degree of success.

Why two alloys? To give you a choice. KA90,

Al-Zn-Sn type (without mercury) is tested to have an average current output of 1176 amp- hours/pound. Voltages range from 1.07v to 1.15v.

Or KA95, Al-Zn-Hg type (with mercury), tested to have an average current output of 1285 amp- hours/pound and a voltage of over 1,05v.

Both KA90 and KA95 aluminum marine anodes are available in sizes up to 1,100 pounds from a 10,000,000-pound/year manufacturing facility designed exclusively for anode production.

And every heat must qualify for acceptance by going through our Q-7 seven-point quality-control program.
