Vector Ebonex Anodes

Discrete anodes for impressed current cathodic protection of reinforcement steel in concrete structures


Ebonex is a discrete Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) anode, specifically designed to protect steel elements in concrete and some steel framed structures from corrosion.

The anode utilises an innovative ceramic/titanium composite combined with an integral gas venting system. The anodes should be installed using Ebofix Grout, which is a high density, acid buffering grout used for long-term performance.

Ebonex anodes are available in a range of sizes, which provide excellent design flexibility. Ebonex discrete anodes are able to provide sufficient performance to satisfy the 100mV potential shift requirement for Cathodic Protection as specified under National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) RP0290 & the European Standard EN12696 -Cathodic Protection of Steel in Concrete.


Typical Applications

  • Bridges
  • Tunnels
  • Steel framed buildings
  • Car parks
  • Reinforced concrete in marine environments


  • Gas venting - no build-up of anodic gases. Can be installed under fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) strengthening systems, membranes, and coatings.
  • Embedded installation - no added dead weight or increase to physical dimensions of structure from thick overlays.
  • Long lasting - longest life expectancy of any discrete CP anode - in excess of 50 years, depending upon design.
  • Low anode consumption - long term stability of anode at current densities up to 900 mA/m2.
  • Highest level of protection - satisfies the 100mV criteria for effective cathodic protection.
  • Proven technology - field verified performance.
  • Cost competitive compared with other types of CP installations.
  • Deep installation - addresses multi-levels of steel in difficult access areas.
  • High operating current - suitable for use in areas of high steel density.
  • Versatile - can be used in new construction as a preventative measure.
