Superior conductivity, high durability and performance.
Pure tungsten is used for welding alloys that are aluminum or magnesium
Generally used with transformer- based welders
Easily forms ball on the end
TIG Tungsten Electrode Gray Color AWS code: EWCe-2
Ceriated tungsten is great for striking an arc with very low amperages.
Best suited for welding alloys like titanium, magnesium, copper and low-alloyed steels
TIG Tungsten Electrode Red Color AWS code: EWTH2
2% Thoriated is most common for DC welding of steel and stainless steel.
Good overall performance. High durability and low burn of rate.
Thoriated electrodes deposit less tungsten into the weld puddle compared to others, resulting in lower weld contamination.
TIG Tungsten Electrode Gold Color AWS code: EWLa-1.5
1.5% Lanthanated tungsten contains less lanthanum compared to the blue tip.
Best used for DC applications
TIG Tungsten Electrode Blue Color AWS code: EWLa-2
2% Lanthanated – Popular general use and performs exceptionally well with both AC and DC applications.
Great for welding various alloys. Steel, stainless steel, aluminum, magnesium, copper, titanium and non-corroding steels
TIG Tungsten Electrode White Color AWS code: EWZr-8
0.8% Zirconated tungsten performs well at higher amperages.
An excellent substitute for green pure tungsten.
Works well with both inverter and transformer type welding machines.
Good for magnesium and aluminum alloys
TIG Tungsten Electrode Brown Color AWS code: EWZr-3
TIG Tungsten Electrode Turquoise Color AWS code: EWG
WS2 mix rare earth tungsten can be used with all materials. Very good ignition characteristics with a high level of durability.Performance is achieved using non-radioactive compounds making it an excellent replacement for applications currently using red 2% thoriated tungsten electrodes. Benefits of converting include improved operator safety and easier disposal of tungsten shavings and stubs.
