Anodes for Steel Electroplating Applications

Optima® Anodes is proud to provide solutions for steel electroplating applications.

The Preferred choice for steel strip coating

Many businesses still use traditional lead and/or graphite anodes for electroplating zinc or tin on a steel strip. If you fall into this category, we recommend consdering Optima anodes, which are manufactured by Evoqua Water Technologies. Our anodes, which feature specially formulated coatings and substrates, are designed to provide the best in steel strip coating. In fact, we've served the steel-coating industry for more than two decades, providing you with reliable anodes that offer the performance you seek.

Benefits of Using our anodes:

  • Improved Quality - Our anodes offer more consistent deposit output on your product; reduce maintenance start-ups and shutdowns; and eliminate anode contaminants. This means you produce a better quality product. 


  • Simple Maintenance - Lightweight and long lasting, our anodes feature a mixed-metal oxide (MMO) catalyst, which is bonded to a titanium substrate. These materials not only last longer than others, but they also offer ease of maintenance, as they will not significantly change dimensions over the time of operation.


  • Optimized Catalysts ​- We're staffed by a leading team of engineers and electrochemists, who will work directly with your maintenance and operation personnel to customize a catalyst that meets your needs.


  • Environmentally Responsible - Unlike lead anodes, Optima Anodes' products do not produce toxic sludge. Thus, our anodes eliminate the hazardous waste, as well as the associated disposal costs with the waste.


  • Improved Line Speed - Time is money. Therefore, it's imperative that you utilize anodes that can sustain operation at higher electrical current outputs. Our anodes do that, resulting in increased capacity and higher profits.
