Tungsten Electrode

Tungsten is the only metal that can meet the high physical and mechanical requirements. Tungsten has the highest melting point of all metals, a low vapor pressure, low thermal expansion, good thermal conductivity and a low electron work function.

Tungsten Welding Electrodes are widely used because they make good welds and are long lasting and quite easy to use. A thoriated tungsten electrode operates at a temperature well below its melting temperature compared to a pure tungsten electrode. This results in a much lower rate of consumption of the electrode during welding, which eliminates much of the “arc wander” associated with balled pure tungsten. Other reasons for their use include easier arc initiation, reduced weld metal contamination, higher current- carrying capacity, the ability to sharpen the electrode, and long life.
