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, RG45 AWS Classification

 

R45 is a general purpose, copper coated, oxy-acetylene gas welding rod used for welding low carbon steels up to ¼” thick.  It is a great selection when ductility and machinability are most important.  You do not need a flux when brazing with this product.  A neutral flame should be used.

 

 

Features

  • A copper coated, low carbon steel rod which is widely used on mild steel.
  • It offers good ductility and machinability.
TypeTIG Electrodes
Diameter1/16''
Length36''
AWS ClassificationRG45
