Abstract : The invention relates generally to electrodes for use in oxidative acid cell systems for the generation of power or in electrolytic cells, such as for electrolysis of salt solutions. An electrode is formed by applying a plurality of coatings to a metal shim wherein the first coating comprises a quantity of particulate conductive material interspersed in a thermosetting resin and wherein the second coating comprises a layer of an active material in an amount sufficient to react with a suitable electrolyte in an electrolytic cell. A third coating of dry lead dioxide particles may be applied to the surface of the second coating in order to reduce activation time.
