Anodic Index Chart

When dissimilar metals come in contact, galvanic compatibility is managed by the selection of finishes and plating to protect the base materials from corrosion.

  • Harsh environments: not more than 0.15 V difference
  • Normal environments: not be more than 0.25 V difference
  • Controlled environments: not be more than 0.50 V difference
