Diamond Ground 2% Lanthanated Tungsten Stinger Electrode TLA08-1500-01-DPackage of 10 -
Diamond Ground 1.5 inch long, 1/8 diameter 2% Lanthanated tungsten stinger electrode is pre-ground on both ends to save time and money in your TIG welding operation. There is no need to measure, cut and then grind these stinger electrodes to a point. They come right out of the package ready to weld. Each lanthanated tungsten stinger electrode is pre-ground to a 20 degree taper and a .010 tip. Once one end of the electrode is worn or contaminated, simply turn it around for a new clean, sharp tip. Once both tips of the electrode are used up, simply throw it away. Pre-ground tungsten electrodes eliminate the shop hazards that are inherent in grinding operations, such as tungsten dust.
Lanthanted tungsten is an excellent non-radioactive substitute for 2% Thoriated tungsten. Similar characteristics to 1.5% Lanthanated with better arc starting, arc stability and less tip erosion. Long life under pulsed welding or heavy amperage loads.Materials Welded
