Tungsten Electrodes

28 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.

For Material Type

2% Lanthanated Tungsten Electrodes

2% Lanthanated Tungsten Electrodes

These 2% lanthanated electrodes feature good arc starts and good arc stability in AC and DC welding on aluminum, magnesium, nickel, copper, titanium, carbon steel, low-alloy steel, and stainless steel. 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.

    Ceriated Tungsten Electrodes

    Ceriated Tungsten Electrodes

    Ceriated tungsten electrodes provide good arc starts, good arc stability, and minimal spitting for low-current AC and DC welding on titanium, copper, magnesium, aluminum, nickel, stainless steel, carbon steel, and low-alloy steel. Because they are used at low amperages, ceriated tungsten electrodes are commonly used for welding thin sheet metal and small and delicate parts. These electrodes can sometimes be used to replace thoriated 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.

      Rare Earth Tungsten Electrodes

      Rare Earth Tungsten Electrodes

      Rare earth tungsten electrodes offer good longevity, good arc stability, and minimal tungsten spitting in low- to moderate-amperage AC and DC welding on aluminum, magnesium, titanium, nickel, copper, carbon steel, low-alloy steel, and stainless steel. Rare earth 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.
