Anode grade Graphite


(1999)

I need inert anode for use in Fluoboric acid bath. Is it possible to get anode grade graphite? Thanks in advance Y.V.Deval

Which metal? Cadmium fluoborate baths require cadmium anodes. Indium fluoborate baths require indium and platinum or graphite, so yes, get yourself a graphite anode for that one. Regards, Tom

Dear Tom

the cathode efficiency is lower than the anode efficiency. As a result the Tin level in bath goes up and I need to bring it back. I can use inert anode along with Tin anode or during night using inert anode I could remove excess Tin. It is a fluoborate chemistry. Any suggestions are most welcome. At present it is necessary to dilute the bath to get Tin in working range. This is very wasteful. Vijay
