In a world increasingly focused on environmental sustainability and the reduction of harmful substances, one company is leading the charge to make a significant positive impact. KATRADIS, in collaboration with the National Technical University of Athens, is proud to announce a groundbreaking development in the field of Cathodic Protection technology – NIKA Anodes without cadmium.

Understanding the Cadmium Problem

Cadmium is a notorious heavy metal known for its extreme toxicity. It ranks among the most harmful substances on Earth, with detrimental effects on both human health and the environment. The use of cadmium in various industrial applications, including anodes, has long been a cause for concern.

A Collaborative Effort for a Greener Future

KATRADIS and the National Technical University of Athens have joined forces to tackle this issue head-on. Their Research and Development team embarked on a mission to create an innovative alloy composition for zinc anodes that eliminates the need for cadmium. The result? NIKA Anodes Cadmium-Free.

The Benefits of NIKA Anodes Cadmium-Free

Environmental Impact Reduction: By eliminating cadmium from their anodes, KATRADIS has significantly reduced the environmental footprint of their products. This move aligns with global efforts to protect ecosystems and minimize toxic waste.

Enhanced Performance: Not only are NIKA Anodes Cadmium-Free more environmentally friendly, but they also deliver better performance. Through an even more active and uniform alloying of zinc anodes, the R&D team achieved superior product performance and uniformity.

Certification & warranties:: We provide certifications from relevant organizations like American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Lloyds Register (LR), DNV GL, etc.

Applications and Impact

NIKA Anodes Cadmium-Free are poised to make a difference across various applications. They provide cathodic protection for Vessels, offshore platforms, marine structures, port infrastructures, mooring systems, pipelines, and more. Customers and organizations looking for sustainable alternatives will find NIKA Anodes to be a compelling choice.

A Step Towards a Greener Future

The development of NIKA Anodes Cadmium-Free is a testament to the commitment of KATRADIS and their collaborators to environmental responsibility and product excellence. It demonstrates that innovative solutions can lead to a healthier planet without compromising performance.

As we move forward in an era where sustainability is paramount, NIKA Anodes Cadmium-Free stand as a shining example of what can be achieved through collaboration, innovation, and a dedication to a greener future in the Maritime industry.
