Magnesium Fresh Water Bar Anode for DP Outdrives

A Volvo Penta Magnesium Anode is used as a sacrificial anode in cathodic protection, fighting corrosion effectively and economically. It is an essential anti-corrosion tool.

Magnesium anodes are ideal for use when protecting your motor or outdrive in freshwater rivers or lakes.

The specifications are, in certain cases, more stringent than any other marine materials standards in the world. If 50% or more of the anode has been eaten away by corrosion it must be replaced in order to, once more, fulfil its vital function.

Never jeopardise saftey and performance by fitting a non-genuine anode. Remember to never paint over the anodes.

If the anode becomes passive, the drive will start to sacrifice itself, this will cause serious damage. Magnesium anodes will wear off much to fast in saltwater.
