About TIG Tungsten Electrodes
These non-consumable electrodes are held in a tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding torch to form an electric arc for creating welds on a workpiece. Tungsten has an extremely high melting point, allowing the electrodes to remain intact during the welding process.
TIG welding, also known as gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) or Heli-arc welding, creates fast, clean welds on a wide range of materials without generating spatter, sparks, smoke, or fumes. It is ideal for welding surfaces that will be visible.
Ceriated tungsten electrodes provide good arc stability, good longevity, and good arc starts at low amperages, and are well suited for low-current AC and DC welding processes. These electrodes are often used for welding thin sheet metal, pipe and orbital tubes, and fragile or small parts. Ceriated electrodes can sometimes be used to replace thoriated electrodes, which contain radioactive thorium, without needing to make significant changes to the welding program.
