Engineered to exact specifications, you can count on these long-lasting electrodes to perform during your most difficult welding application, time and time again. With reliable arc-striking and a low burn-off rate, these electrodes maintain the highest quality of arc while adhering to ANSI and Aussie & U.S Welding standards such as AWS A5.12M/A5.12:2009.
Pure tungsten electrodes contain 99.50 percent tungsten, have the highest consumption rate of all electrodes, and typically are less expensive than their alloyed counterparts.
These electrodes form a clean, balled tip when heated and provide great arc stability for AC welding with a balanced wave.
It is not typically used for DC welding because it does not provide the strong arc starts associated with thoriated, lanthanated or ceriated electrodes.
Pure tungsten also provides good arc stability for AC sine wave welding, especially on aluminum and magnesium.
Over fifty years of experience have culminated into these premium quality TIG welding tungsten electrodes, and you can benefit from that experience.
