Corrosion Electrodes

Disposable Carbon Steel RDE-2 Electrodes Compatible for Corrosion Studies

Performing corrosion work and need an electrode suitable for you application? BASi's new C1018 carbon steel, disposable RDE-2 electrodes are now available for purchase! the carbon steel metal insert perfecly screws onto the redesigned RDE-2 electrode body holder (PCTFE) for an easy and low-cost option! The steel metal can easily be replaced, and standard and extra-long configurations are available.

When performing electrochemical corrosion research, at times, the electrodes are exposed to potentials that lead to irreversible corrosion processes, rendering the electrodes unusable after one use. To circumvent this issue, the end-user will need to replace the electrode or “sample” each time, or as often as needed, and thus necessitates one to have access to disposable electrode materials compatible for corrosion work. BASi’s new carbon steel disposable RDE-2 electrodes are now available to allow one to replace the carbon steel metal and keep the PCTFE electrode body holder that dramatically reduces the cost! Steel/electrode body configurations will be available in 2 sizes – standard and extra-long.


MF-2165 and MF-2165-XL Double-threaded Electrode Bodies

These new RDE-2 electrode bodies have 2 screw threads on both ends – one for attaching to the RDE-2 and the other for attaching the disposable metal inserts. This allows re-use of the electrode holder after each use and comes in 2 sizes – 25 mm (standard RDE-2 electrodes) and 60 mm (extra-long to fit bigger electrochemical cells, like MR-1194 and MR-1195).

MF-2166 and MF-2166-XL RDE Carbon Steel Metal Inserts

These new disposable metal RDE-2 inserts are made of standard C1018 carbon steel suitable for corrosion, with 6.35 mm in diameter, and a surface area of 0.52 cm2. Easily screws onto the new, re-designed electrode body (MF-2165 or MF-2166-XL). Available in 2 lengths – 5 mm and 40 mm.
