Anodes are carbon blocks used as conductors in the electrolysis process by which aluminum is produced. The raw materials used in the production of anodes are:

These three raw materials are combined after various operations and the mixture is then vibrated in a mold until the desired shape. The anode is baked to a temperature of 1090 °C for two weeks. The anode now possesses the properties that are important for the customer, such as high density, high conductivity, and low reactivity. After baking, the anode is packaged and transported to the customer.
