Ceramic Components for Use in Galvanic Applications

Galvanic Diaphragm Cells and Plates

CeramTec offers porous galvanic diaphragm cells and plates for the diaphragm process in galvanic baths – in chrome plating for instance. This is a process chiefly used in electrolysis and redox reactions (in galvanic elements) and is based on the separation of both electrodes and their ion solutions by a porous wall, the diaphragm.

CeramTec manufactures the cells and tubes from the special porous alumina material P80, which is only available from CeramTec. The use of ceramic diaphragm cells and plates in chrome plating helps avoid metal impurities, the oxidation of Cr3+ and pre-treating rinsing water, resulting in improved quality and process speed.
