The performance of impressed current anodes is greatly affected by the choice of backfill they are deployed in.

An ideal backfill should have:

• Low resistivity to reduce anode to earth resistance.
• High porosity to allow gases produced at the surface of the anode to escape.
• Low density to provide high permeability with cost effectiveness.
• In addition, the backfill should flow easily, and be of high purity.

We supply a superior quality backfill, which is dried and screened for increased performance.
