TUNGSTEN ELECTRODES

TYPE COLOR SIZE DESCRIPTION
2% Thoriated Red .020 x 7" 2% thoriated tungsten contain a nominal 2 wt-% or thorium oxide (ThO2) that is evenly dispersed throughout the entire length of the tungsten. The most common type of electrode used today. Provides excellent resistance from weld pool contamination while at the same time offers the welder easier arc starting capabilities and a more stable arc. Generally used for DC electrode negative or straight polarity applications such as carbon & stainless steels, nickel alloys and titanium.
Red .040 x 7"
Red 1/16 x 7"
Red 3/32 x 7"
Red 1/8 x 7"
Red 5/32 x 7"
TYPE COLOR SIZE DESCRIPTION
Pure Green .020 x 7" Pure tungsten contain a minimum of 99.5 wt-% tungsten with no other alloying elements. This allows the tip to form a clean, balled end which provides good arc stability on AC. Pure can be used with DC but does not compare with thoriated or ceriated as far as ease of arc starting. More susceptible to weld contamination than thoriated, ceriated or lanthanated. Usually the least expensive of all tungsten, pure tungsten is generally used in the welding of aluminum and magnesium alloys (AC).

TYPE COLOR SIZE DESCRIPTION
2% Ceriated Orange .020 x 7" 2% ceriated tungsten contain a nominal 2 wt-% or cerium oxide (CeO2). Ceriated is different from the thoriated as it is not a radioactive material. Also, the ceriated tungsten tends to last longer than thoriated and can be used proficiently with AC or DC. In manual applications the ceriated tungsten will provide slightly different electrical characteristics than the thoriated tungsten but generally no difference will be seen by the operator. Generally used to weld carbon & stainless steels, nickel alloys and titanium.

TYPE COLOR SIZE DESCRIPTION
2% Lanthanated Black .020 x 7" 2% lanthanated or "rare earth" tungsten contain a nominal 2 wt-% lanthanum oxide (LaO3). This type of tungsten is very similar to ceriated as it too is a non-radioactive material. Lanthanated electrodes operate at slightly different arc voltages than thoriated or ceriated electrodes. Were developed around the same time as ceriated tungsten to help combat the increasing awareness of the radioactivity of thoriated tungsten. Generally used to weld carbon & stainless steels, nickel alloys and titanium.

Zirconiated, 1% Thoriated, Rare Earth, and Tri-Mix are all also available.

Other lengths are available upon request with a relatively short lead time.
