PLATINUM PLATED TITANIUM ANODES OR REPLATING TITANIUM ANODE FOR ELECTRO PLATING APPLICATION - TIAANO MANUFACTURER AND SUPPLIER OF PLATINISED TITANIUM ANODES AND PLATINIZED NIOBIUM ANODES

Tiaano Platinised Titanium Anodes are most suitable for electro plating (Metal Finishing). The behaviour of platinized titanium ‘slave’ or ‘auxiliary’ anodes in electroplating is described, with particular reference to use in the plating of gold, rhodium, nickel, copper, tin and chromium. Preceding this survey some characteristics of commercially available platinized titanium are considered, including method of preparation, overvoltage, composition and platinum thickness. The results of accelerated laboratory tests to define limiting conditions of use are given, and durability is contrasted with that of alternative experimental noble-metal-coated refractory metals. Degradation of anode surfaces encountered in some practical applications is attributed to platinum dissolution resulting from reaction with particular organic additives, but in some circumstances an undermining of the coating as a result of superficial dissolution of the titanium may occur.

Platinised titanium anodes were the first coated electrodes to be marketed, and in many applications they have been displaced by dimensionally stable oxide coatings that have been highly optimised for the particular electrolyte. However, there remains a market for anodes which can be used in relatively small scale processes and this could be met by high performance, platinised titanium anodes. Indeed, the number of such applications in electrosynthesis and environmental processing is expanding. It may be timely, therefore, to re-examine the manufacture and performance of platinised titanium anodes and to consider using platinum alloys for nonspecific applications; for example, platinum/iridium coatings on titanium are known to have superior properties in some applications.

PLATINUM PLATED TITANIUM MESH BASKET ANODE FOR ROTO GRAVURE CYLINDER PLATING - TIAANO MANUFACTURER AND SUPPLIER OF PLATINISED TITANIUM ANODES AND PLATINIZED NIOBIUM ANODES

Platinum Plating Titanium Anodes using high-temperature electrolysis offers two additional ecological benefits: Considerably longer life span based on better durability. Sparing use of platinum (which is made resistant to corrosion through high-temperature electrolysis). Re-platinization of the base substrate means that any existing platinum can be refurbished and reused, saving costs.

Gravure printing is widely used for printing magazines, catalogues, stamps, packaging, wallpapers or decorative papers for the furniture industry as well as elaborate artistic publications. The gravure cylinder used for this method consists of a steel core which is coated with copper. To increase the wear resistance, a chrome layer is subsequently applied. For both electroplating processes, given tolerances must be controlled to ensure print quality meets quality standards.

As an engraving material, copper is comparatively “soft”. To increase the hardness, additives are added to the electroplating bath. By nature, chromium is a hard metal with a fine grain structure. This makes it ideal for protecting the engraved copper deposits applied to gravure cylinders. During press runs of any length hard chromium protects the cylinder from wear caused by paper and grit abrasion and, under normal conditions, enables the cylinder to print in clearer, sharper lines for the entire run.

Advantages of Platinized Anodes in gravure / Rotogravure Cylinders Plating:-

Long life, dimensionally stable and easily fabricated into required shape

Easier handling and replating

PLATINUM PLATED TITANIUM SHEET ANODE FOR METAL FINISHING APPLICATION - TIAANO MANUFACTURER AND SUPPLIER OF PLATINISED TITANIUM ANODES AND PLATINIZED NIOBIUM ANODES

Metal Finishing is a process whereby a coating is deposited onto a substrate by passing a DC current between the anode and the cathode. The metal that is to be plated is dissolved in the electrolyte. The anode (Platinum Plated Anode) is anodically polarized and the cathode (the component to be electroplated) is cathodically polarized. This forms a closed cell. Anode performance is of considerable importance in realizing the success of the electroplating industry.

Tiaano manufacturing Mixed Metal Oxide and Platinized Titanium Anodes for use in various applications where the electroplating of a wide range of metals is necessary. The use of stainless steel anodes, although relatively inexpensive produce iron oxide (rust) as a by-product of anodic passivation and the use of graphite anodes results in an increasing inter-electrode gap as the anode dissolves meaning voltage and product quality do not remain constant. Inert anodes are frequently made from platinized titanium, which is titanium coated with a thin, not necessarily continuous, layer of electrodeposited platinum approximately 2.5 μm thick.

Tiaano manufacturing different sizes and Shapes (Multi slot, Multi hole, Perforated, Slotted, Mesh etc) of platinised Titanium Anodes and Platinized Niobium Anodes for Electro Plating. Platinised titanium anodes combine the excellent electrochemical characteristics of platinum with the good corrosion qualities of titanium.  This anode is designed for Electro Plating application.

The advantage that these Titanium Anodes have over the two previous anode types and lead anodes is that the risk of additional toxic or hazardous substances being introduced into the electroplating line is eliminated, eradicating costs that arise from the removal of hazardous substances. They are also environmentally friendly and the fact that the inter-electrode gap remains constant throughout the design life of the anode means that the Titanium Anodes maintain constant voltage and product quality. Oxygen-evolving Titanium Anodes have lower anodic operating potentials and use of these anodes yields the additional advantage of the ability to re-use the anodes. Once the anodes have reached the end of their design life the necessary repairs can be made, the anodes can be cleaned and then re-coated.

Titanium offers superior corrosion resistance, uniform current distribution, exhibits a superior catalytic nature, good thermal conductivity and high mechanical stability.

What is Electroplating?

Electroplating is basically the process of plating a metal onto the other by hydrolysis mostly to prevent corrosion of metal or for decorative purposes. The process uses an electric current to reduce dissolved metal cations to develop a lean coherent metal coating on the electrode. Electroplating is often applied in the electrical oxidation of anions on a solid substrate like the formation of silver chloride on silver wire to form silver chloride electrodes.

Electroplating is majorly applied to modify the surface features of an object (e.g corrosion protection, lubricity, abrasion), but the process can also be used to build thickness or make objects by electro forming.

The Anode and Cathode:-

In electroplating practice, the current is usually introduced from an external source and the anode is the positive electrode and cathode is a negative electrode. The cathode is the electrode where the electrochemical reduction reaction occurs. The anode is that where the electrochemical oxidation reaction occurs.

The electroplating process uses an anode and a cathode. In electroplating, the metal dissolved from the anode can be plated onto the cathode. The anode is provided with direct current, oxidizing and dissolving its metal atoms in the electrolyte solution. At the cathode, the dissolved metal ions are decreased and the metal is placed on the product.
