The insertion of small pieces of platinum into the surface of lead or lead alloy anodes causes a remarkablechange in their behaviour as electrodes. Such lead-platinum bielectrodes are inexpensive, robust and easily fabricated and can be used successfully for the cathodic protection of marine structures. In this article the author describes the principles involved and reviews ten years of experience in a variety of applications.
