• If you’ve been using a cotton jacket material,
you’ll want to use the cotton sleeving.
• If you’ve been using a polyester jacket material,
you’ll want to use the blended or the polyester
sleeving.
• There are various sizes available. The next 2
slides will familiarize you with them and help you
determine which size to choose for your
particular anodes.

Wrapping Anodes
• The following figures illustrate how cotton batting
and sleeving covers are applied.
• Cotton batting covers with sleeving should
generally be approximately 5 mm (3/16 in.) thick.
They should also be as uniform in thickness as
possible. Thick areas have more resistance to
current flow and less plating results in these
areas.
Wrapping an ID Style Anode
PREPARATION OF COTTON
BATTING
Cut a piece of long-fiber cotton batting about
one inch wider than the length of the SIFCO
anode and six to eight times longer than the
diameter.
Split the cotton to about 2 mm (3/32 in.) thickness
so that the final cover thickness after rolling will be
5 mm (3/16 in.).
Lay the cotton on a table and wet the anode
with water so that it will adhere to the end of
the cotton.
Roll anode into cotton in the direction of the cotton
fibers, to gather it up. Feather the ends of the cotton
so that the long fibers can be intertwined.

SLEEVING SECURES COTTON
WRAP
The application of sleeving provides maximum
wear resistance and reduces cutting through
on sharp edges.
Cut a piece of sleeving at least three times as
long as the anode and slip the first layer as on
a finger. Twist the unused part of sleeving and
then slip second layer over.
Secure end of sleeving with a rubber band or
polyester sleeving tie. The finished wrapping
should be neat and compact with no bulges or
thin spots.
Wrapping Flat Anode
FOLD COTTON AROUND ANODE
The long-fiber cotton pad for flat anodes
should be cut to provide a 13 mm (1/2 in.)
overlap around the anode.
Place the anode on the cotton making sure
that the length of the cotton fibers run in
the direction of the long side of the anode.
Fold the cotton evenly around the anode
and keep the bottom surface smooth.
Wrapping Flat Anode
INSERT INTO SLEEVING
Holding the wrapped anode by the bottom
to keep the cotton smooth, insert it into a
piece of sleeving at least three times as
long as the anode.
Twist the unused part of sleeving and then
slip the second layer over the anode and
secure the end with rubber bands or
polyester sleeving ties.
Wrapping Flat Anode
CUT HOLE FOR HANDLE
Cut a hole in the sleeving large enough to
screw the SIFCO tool handle into the
anode
The fully wrapped flat anode
should have a smooth even pad of cotton
on the bottom, secured tightly by the
sleeving.
Wrapping An OD Anode
PREPARATION OF COTTON
BATTING
Cut a piece of cotton batting large enough
to cover the concave side of the anode to
be wrapped. It is important that the cotton
fibers run along the longest dimension of
the pad.
This pad can be split into two layers for use
on smaller anodes. Thickness of the
cotton used may vary according to the
application. Experience has shown that 5
mm (3/16 in.) thickness works well for the
average application.
Mold the cotton to the concave side of the
anode (Picture 12). Wetting the anode with
water will help the cotton adhere to the
anode.
Wrapping An OD Anode
FASTEN SLEEVING
Cut a suitable size of sleeving (at least
three times the length of the anode) and
slip half the sleeving over the anode and
cover. The remaining half of the sleeving is
then twisted and slipped over the
anode.
At least two layers of sleeving cover
are thus provided, the ends of which are
secured with rubber bands or sleeving ties
around the base of the solution flow tube.
Wrapping An OD Anode
FASTEN SLEEVING
Cut a hole in the sleeving for the SIFCO
tool handle and insert the handle. The
finished tool should have a smooth
concave surface.
