Abstract

FOR some years, I.C.I. Metals Division, pioneers in British titanium production, have been making an intensive effort to exploit the metal's phenomenal corrosion resistance. In the course of a comprehensive research programme, attention was directed towards the possibility of using titanium as an anode material in the impressed voltage cathodic protection of marine structures. Although well established, this method of preventing corrosion has always been limited by the choice of anode materials available, all of which have some technical disadvantages. In particular, because they can only be used at relatively low current densities (between 1 and 15 amp./sq.ft.), large anodes must be employed to protect a sizeable structure.
