Diamond Ground 2% Ceriated Tungsten Electrode CE2
Package of 10- 7 inch 2% ceriated tungsten electrode. Performs well in DC welding and arc
starting at low current settings, and can
be used proficiently in AC processes.
Ceriated tungsten is recommended for short welding cycles on low-amp, DC orbital tube, pipe, thin sheet and small part applications. Provides excellent low current and arc ignition with good arc stability. This tungsten is not recommended for higher heat applications. The cerium tends to migrate very quickly to the heat at the tip of the electrode.
Tungsten shown with orange tip. Your order will ship with the new Grey tip color.

Answer:The Weldcraft 2% Ceriated Tungsten Electrode can be used on a transformer based tig welder without any loss of performance.. It can also be used it the AC weld mode for welding aluminum rather than using pure tungsten. When preparing the Ceriated Tunsten for AC welding it is recommended that the after the tungsten is ground to a point that the point be truncated to remove the very end of the tungsten to give it a flat end

Is this one of the better electrode for welding aluminum?
By Customer Service on February 25, 2014
Answer:Depending on the type of welding machine you have your choices can vary. If you have an older style transformer based machine like a Miller Syncrowave pure tungsten would be a good choice.. If you have an invertor based machine like a Miller Dynasty the Weldcraft 2% Ceriated Tungsten Electrode WC040X7 would be one choice you can also use the new E3 type tungsten or you may want to consider the Rare Earth Tunsten
