The unique alloy composition ensures the coating is easy to apply and provides consistent uniform sacrificial corrosion of the anode, minimal self protection, negligible wasted current capacity and high anode efficiency.
The P+ region in the backside of the wafer enhances anode efficiency.
Anode efficiency is often <100% due to cyanide oxidation to form carbonate and formation of a whitish film.
For acid solutions soluble anodes are usual and have no problems; small areas of insoluble anodes are used to reduce the anode efficiency to ~96% which may traditionally be silicon-iron or nowadays iridium-oxide coated titanium.
