LIDA® NET Anodes

Lida Net Anode 

LIDA® NET Anode Introduction
LIDA® NET Anode is the leading mixed metal oxide anode technology. Reliability is proven with over 110,000 square meters of installed anode surface area in more than 30 countries.

LIDA® NET Anode Advantages
  • Even current distribution the highly expanded mesh pattern provides uniform cathodic protection current to the rebars
  • Pre-fabricated the LlDA® NET Anode arrives at the job site ready to be rolled out, fastened down and connected
  • Quick all weather installation no need to wait for curing, mixing of chemicals, cutting of slots or spraying of paints; there are no electrical splices in the concrete
  • Activation coating mixed metal oxide coating; the LlDAź NET produces mainly oxygen
  • Quality control LlDAź NET Anode is manufactured under strict quality control procedures, quality control certificates are provided on request
