What Are TIG Tungsten Electrodes?


Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding is a popular type of welding that utilizes tungsten electrodes to join various metals. The tungsten electrode is a critical component in the process, as it channels the current required to establish the arc. The tungsten electrodes can be alloyed with a variety of metals. Different types and sizes of electrodes are used for different types of welds and materials, and welders develop preferences based on welding style and project. Certain electrode types perform better with alternating current (AC) as opposed to direct current (DC).


 These are a  7" 2% Thoriate Tungsten Electrodes with 3/32" Diameter, sold each.

 

 

Thorium-Dioxide-Doped Tungsten Electrodes Containing 1.8% - 2.2% THO2. The most common type of electrode used on carbon and stainless steel. The higher thoria content in the EWTh-2 electrode causes the operating characteristic improvements to be more pronounced than in the lower thoria content EWTh-1.To use Thoriated electrodes for alternating current welding

 

Features

  • Longer life than 1% Thoria while providing easy arc starting, stable arc, higher current capacity and increased resistance to weld pool contamination
  • Electrodes are 100% Eddy Current tested
  • Annealed brittled for ease of sizing
  • Finest available tungsten powder (APT)
  • Manufactured under a quality system certified to ISO 9001 requirements
  • Meets AWS/ANSI specifications
  • Ground for maximum smoothness


Applications

  • Tungsten rod products are used as electrodes in the Gas Tungsten Arc-Welding (GTAW) also known as Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG)
  • These products are also used for Plasma Cutting.
