Solid Stick Anodes are a type of Silicon Iron Anode and are chill cast in metal moulds. This guarantees a rapid solidification as chill-casted anodes have excellent grain structure than normal sand cast anodes which provide better performance to corrosion protection.
As stick anodes are chill-cast this assures consistent weight and greater density. This also ensures less flake grain boundary and a low chemical segregation. They are extremely strong and tolerate drop impact tests to more than twice the height of sand-cast anodes.
Specialist Castings offer Stick Anodes with or without a chrome additive. This chrome additive enhances the performance of the anode system and is usually accepted as standard.
