Tungsten Electrodes for TIG Welding

view as:
Ceriated Tungsten Electrodes
Ceriated Tungsten Electrodes

Containing minimum 97.30% tungsten and 1.80% to 2.20% cerium, ceriated tungsten electrode is an environmental electrode without any radioactivity. It has better performance of DC welding under low amperage and therefore widely welcomed by customers. Cerium tungsten electrode could easily operate arcing...

Thoriated Tungsten Electrodes
Thoriated Tungsten Electrodes

Containing minimum of 97.30% tungsten and 1.70% to 2.20% thorium, thoriated tungsten electrode has good overall performance, especially suitable for bearing the overload current. It is the most commonly used electrode in America and some other countries. With very high temperature resistance and minimal ...

Lanthanated Tungsten Electrodes
Lanthanated Tungsten Electrodes

Lanthanated tungsten electrode, also known as lanthanum tungsten electrode, is a non-radioactive material with good welding performance. It can be primarily used for DC welding as well as AC welding. Lanthanum tungsten electrode has been the most popular alternative to 2% thoriated tungsten electrode in Europe and ...

Zirconiated Tungsten Electrodes
Zirconiated Tungsten Electrodes

Zirconiated tungsten electrode, also known as zirconium tungsten electrode, has excellent performance in AC welding, which is irreplaceable by any other electrodes. Zirconiated tungsten electrode is most commonly used for AC welding of aluminum and magnesium alloys...

Pure Tungsten, Yttriated Tungsten and Composite Electrodes
Pure Tungsten, Yttriated Tungsten and Composite Electrodes

Pure tungsten electrode, yttriated tungsten electrode and composite electrode (rare earth tungsten electrode) are made from tungsten, yttrium and rare earth oxides in appropriate proportion.
1.Pure tungsten electrode is the least expensive one of all tungsten...

With superb properties of high hardness, high temperature resistance more than 3000℃, tungsten is a rare metallic element used for producing TIG electrodes, which carry good performance of TIG welding.
These non-consumable tungsten electrodes for TIG welding can be produced in a variety of sizes and lengths. They are composed of either pure tungsten or a hybrid of tungsten together with other rare earth elements and oxides. Choosing appropriate tungsten electrodes for TIG welding depends on the material type and thickness of the base as well as AC/DC current. The type and shape you use helps determine the arc quality and welding performance you will achieve. It is always important to choose your tungsten electrodes for TIG welding wisely for each application.

Product categories:
1. Ceriated tungsten electrode;
2. Thoriated tungsten electrode;
3. Lanthanated tungsten electrode;
4. Zirconiated tungsten electrode;
5. Pure tungsten electrode;
6. Yttriated tungsten electrode;
7. Composite electrode (rare earth tungsten electrode).

Suggestion on Choosing Appropriate:
1. The general consensus is that ceriated or lanthanated tungsten electrodes are acceptable alternatives to thoriated tungsten electrode, particularly with a DC current;
2. Zirconiated tungsten electrode is more preferable for AC current welding;
3. If possible, you'd better consider to take another suitable alternative tungsten electrode for TIG welding to replace thoriated tungsten electrode.
