Home / Shop / TIG / Electrodes / TIG Welding Tungsten Electrodes 2% Thoriated Welding Rods 7” - Red, WT20 - 10 Pack

Description

This is the most widely used electrode. It is extremely long lasting and highly durable and these electrodes are a staple in DC welding applications.
2% Thoriated Tungsten is best for copper alloys, nickel alloys, titanium alloys and non-corroding steels.
Thorium is radioactive; always ensure to follow all warnings, instructions, and the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for its use.
Colour Code Red

Shielding Gas

Normally the gas used is argon (Ar). Helium (He) can be added to increase penetration and fluidity of the weld pool.

Applications

TIG can be used to weld copper, titanium, even two dissimilar metals, and is handy for making tricky welds, like welding pipe or round items.

Warning

The Thorium used in 2 per cent Thoriated tungsten is a radioactive element and therefore can be dangerous to the health of those exposed to it and to the environment.

This occurs primarily during the inhalation of dust caused during grinding of tips for welding, but also to a lesser extent during breathing of any fumes released during welding.

Certifications

  • ANSI / AWS A5.12M98
  • ISO 6848

AWS classification EWTh-2 improves arc starts and allows for higher current carrying capacity AC welding, but are exceptional for DC electrode negative or straight polarity on carbon and stainless steel, nickel and titanium applications.
