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.

 

These are a pound (1lb) of 36" Mild Steel TIG Electrodes with 1/16" Diameter, ER70S-6 AWS Classification

 

ER70S6 is a mild steel TIG welding wire that contains higher levels of manganese and silicon than other standard grades of TIG wire to produce high quality welds when used on dirty, oily, or rusty steel. The high silicon content increases the fluidity of the weld pool, thus creating a smoother bead appearance and resulting in minimal post-weld grinding. This wire is engineered to provide porosity-free, x-ray quality welds at the highest tensile strength (as welded) of all the plain carbon steel wires.

 

 

Features

  • Excellent welding characteristics
  • Precise control of wire chemistry
  • Minimal contamination of wire surface during manufacturing process
  • Consistent weld deposit chemistry and procedures from package to package improve quality and save time
  • Good bead wetting characteristics
  • Great puddle control
  • Clean welds, minimal "smut"

 

Applications

  • General shop applications with poor fit-up or rusty, oily plates
  • Steel Castings or Forging Salvage
  • Home Projects
  • Tanks
  • Sheet Metal
  • Construction Work
