Tungsten Electrodes

12 products

TIG (tungsten inert gas) electrodes each insert into a compatible TIG torch that is connected to a TIG welder that supplies current to the electrode. An arc is created between the electrode and the workpiece, and the heat from the arc melts the workpiece material to create the weld. The type of electrode used depends on the base material and thickness of the workpiece, as well as the type of output current provided by the welder. Also known as gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), TIG welding creates clean, precise welds and is ideal for welding thin materials and surfaces that will be visible. A complete TIG torch setup includes a nozzle, collet body or gas lens, collet, insulators, back cap, torch body, torch handle, and electrode.

AWS Classification

1.5% Lanthanated Tungsten Electrodes

1.5% Lanthanated Tungsten Electrodes

These 1.5% lanthanated tungsten electrodes offer good arc starts, good arc stability, and minimal spitting in AC or DC welding on stainless steel, titanium, nickel, and copper. Lanthanated tungsten electrodes can sometimes be used to replace thoriated tungsten electrodes, which contain radioactive thorium, without needing to make significant changes to the welding program. The electrodes insert into a compatible TIG torch that is connected to a TIG welder that supplies current to the electrode.
