What Are TIG  Electrodes / Welding Rods?


With electric arc welding, a major use for the welding rod is as a consumable electrode that also generates heat in the workpiece. An electrical discharge from this electrode provides heat that melts both the electrode and heats the base metal. TIG welding is an electric welding process that uses a non-consumed tungsten electrode to provide heat, with the Welding rod added manually. This is more like gas welding as a process, but with a different heat source. The welding rod has an outer flux coating which protects the metal from damage, stabilizes the arc, and improves the weld. When joining two pieces of metal together, electrodes are used to create an electric arc. The two metals heat and melt, fusing together in a stronger bond.

4043 aluminum GTAW (TIG) welding alloy is an all-position 5% silicon alloy used to weld heat-treatable base metals. It is most often used to weld the 6XXX series of alloys. The silicon addition improves puddle fluidity, producing an appealing bead profile. It is less crack sensitive on the 6XXX series than other welding alloys. It is qualified to AWS A5.10 ER4043, ABS, ISO Designation AlSi5. It is commonly used for welding automotive parts, truck trailers and repairing bicycles.

 

Features

 

  • Designed for welding heat treatable base alloys, specifically 6XXX series alloys
  • Lower melting point and more fluidity than the 5XXX series filler alloys
  • Low sensitivity to weld cracking with the 6XXX series base alloys
  • All position welding rod
  • Often used to for repair welding aluminum/silicon cast alloys such as grades 353/A356
  • Common choice for welding 6061
  • Gray (post anodized) color
  • Embossed on each end for easy identification after use

 

Applications

 

  • Welding 6XXX series alloys
  • Repair welding of aluminum/cast alloys such as grades 353/A356
  • Automotive components such as frames, drive shafts, parts, truck trailers, bicycle frames
