MG Duff
Sacrificial Anodes for Marine Cathodic Protection

MGDUFF has been at the forefront of marine cathodic protection, including sacrificial anodes, since the early 1950’s. MGDUFF continues to be one of the largest suppliers of systems and services to the marine market in the UK and throughout the world.

The company's involvement in corrosion control spans all aspects of the marine sector from the leisure boat market to commercial deep sea shipping and coastal and shoreline structures such as piling, jetties, lock and dock gates, linkspans and pontoon systems.

MGDUFF has an experienced technical department and offers full design services and technical support as well as providing the most comprehensive range of sacrificial anodes and impressed current cathodic protection systems.

One of the specialities of the MME group is corrosion control by means of Cathodic Protection.

As steel is the most widely used material for marine structures such as ships, offshore platforms, undersea pipelines, lock gates etc. some form of corrosion protection is necessary in order to ensure a reasonable lifetime for these investments.

Since MME started, more than 3.500.000 anodes were supplied for the cathodic protection of ships, quay walls, jetties, lock gates and offshore installations.
The availability of more than 80 different types of standard anodes in zinc and aluminium alloys and the facility to make moulds for specifically dimensioned non standard anodes enables us to protect your investment to the optimum.

Performance Metals
Performance Metals was launched in November 2002 by SciCast International, Inc., an established U.S. die-casting company that has been in business in Pennsylvania since 1959.

Performance Metals entered the boating market as a supplier of aluminum/indium anodes for Mercury outdrive units, satisfying a need that had not been available before. Performance Metals is an independent company, with full engineering, tooling and manufacturing resources.

Aluminum/indium sacrificial anode alloy (Navalloy®) is not the same as the aluminum used in outdrives etc. It contains 5% zinc and a trace of indium, which ensures that it corrodes to protect the boat’s metal components.

Since its inception two years ago, Performance Metals has consistently introduced new concepts and changed the sacrificial anode business:

Performance Metals has an uncompromising commitment to quality:

Corrosion Prevention With Teeth

  • Cornish company with 35+ years casting expereience
  • Traceable, Quality Assured ZN1 Zinc
  • Developing product range - sizes to suit most vessels


We are a foundry with more than 20 years of experience in the field of cathodic protection wich is the natural remedy against iron and other metals corrosion in marine and underground environment. The used technique consists in polarizing the structure to be protected by making it cathodic, changing the potential to the corrosion immunity.

This could be realized by two alternatives:

Thanks to anode alloy quality which is on the basis of this application, by fusion of particular alloys containing high quality metals in fair proportion, a pile (anode) with high efficiency is obtained.

About the production of anodes (passive cathodic protection) in Zinc, Aluminium And Magnesium, TECNOSEAL with its know-how covers a wide range of activities as: projects, consultancy for Marine and Industrial cathodic, protection system application included refineries, projects and cathodic protection system for concrete buildings and steel structures, aqueducts and pipe-line.

We endeavour to carry sufficient stocks to offer a next day service where possible.

All epoxies are not created equal.

Epoxy Performance

Epoxy brands can vary widely in their formulations, quality of raw materials and their suitability for marine environments. It's easy to market an off-the-shelf industrial epoxy product as a marine epoxy, or formulate an epoxy with one or two favourable characteristics, while sacrificing other important characteristics.

It's much more difficult balancing all of the physical and mechanical properties necessary for a versatile, high-quality marine epoxy. (performance diagram) Defining an epoxy's performance criteria, and designing a formula to meet those criteria requires good chemistry, rigorous test programs, skilful shop work and direct experience with today's high-performance boats and other composite structures.

There are basically three types of anodes - Zinc, Aluminium and Magnesium.  Which ones should you use? In simple terms, zinc are for sea water, aluminium for brackish and magnesium for fresh water.  If you use magnesium ones at sea they will erode very rapidly and may damage your hull paintwork.  Obversely if you use Zinc andoes in fresh water they will erode extremely slowly and not give as good a protection as magnesium.
