Marine Protection Systems Maddox Composite Alloy Anode
Maddox anodes effectively protects bronze and stainless steel parts on fiberglass and wooden vessels by creating a more neutral environment in the water around the metal to be protected.
Reduces slipping and maintenance costs
Maintains hull and propeller coatings
Attracts less growth than zinc
Stops wood rot in timber vessels
Protects fibreglass and timber boats
Complies with ABYC & DNV directives
How It Works
The Maddox anode is an internationally accredited sacrificial anode for timber and fibreglass vessels. The patented composite alloy is closer than zinc in mV potential to the submerged metals found on most boats making it less aggressive on coatings and parts than the zinc equivalent.
The appropriate size anode for any one vessel depends on the type, volume and surface area of the submerged metals to be protected.
Maddox anodes available in
Fibreglass, wooden or carbon vessels 20 – 45 Ft with one shaft will require a 1.6 Maddox Anode and with two shafts a 2.5 Maddox Anode all vessels 46 – 75 Ft will require a 4.2 Maddox anode.
A single transom mounted Maddox anode negates the need for all other shaft, rudder and trim tab anodes
previously fitted and is connected to the Vessel Bonding System.
