Pure tungsten electrode is used for the AC TIG welding of aluminum or magnesium.
Ceriated tungsten welding electrode is suitable for either AC or DC TIG welding and is excellent for use in low amperage welding applications.
Lanthanted tungsten welding electrode is the most common replacement for thoriated (radioactive) tungsten and is available in both 1.5% and 2% alloys.
Thoriated (radioactive) tungsten welding electrode is the most widely used tungsten in the U.S. for DC TIG welding applications.
Tri-Mix™, Rare Earth & E3® premium tungsten electrodes combine three oxides for maximum life and performance for AC or DC TIG welds.
Zirconiated tungsten welding electrode is a must for AC TIG welds requiring minimal tungsten contamination.
