MtoNauticastore.it offers anodes and zincs for pleasure boating and fishing. Indispensable to prevent galvanic corrosion of the engine and hull when the boat is in the water, anodes and zincs are available in a wide range of types, dedicated to the main brands of engines and accessory parts. The sacrificial anode is indispensable to protect the hull and the motor and all those metal parts from corrosion and galvanic currents. It is called the sacrificial anode because it is "sacrificed" by corroding to protect the boat and parts of it. Sacrificial anodes also called zinc are to be replaced every year or whenever they have corroded.
There are different types of sacrificial anodes based on its use and they find zinc for marine engines that have cathodic protection for the outboard and / or inboard engine parts and the zinc for propellers that protect them from galvanic corrosion caused by galvanic currents.
These zincs or sacrificial anodes must not be covered or painted and I must have good contact with the hull or the engine.
To protect the boats from galvanic currents, metal blocks are installed which can be made of zinc, aluminum or magnesium. Galvanic currents attacking and corroding metals, but being these anodes of a material less resistant than the hull or engines, it is consumed first, preserving the materials that make up the engine, transmission, keel, propeller on which they are applied. The sacrificial anodes do not have to be made of zinc but can be made of aluminum or magnesium based on the mate areas where the boat is located. It is preferable to use zinc or aluminum anodes in salt water, while magnesium anodes are used in hot water
