2% Lanthanated Tungsten Electrode - 150mm 10 Pack
2% Lanthanted tungsten electrodes handle more amperage than any other formulation for their diameter, they ball up better for AC welding and they are suitable for transformer and inverter welders.
They are perfect for welding any type of material compatible compatible with tig welding, including aluminium, magnesium, carbon steels, stainless steels, Inconel, chromoly, titanium, copper and even can be used for tig brazing with silicon bronze or aluminium bronze rod.
For best results when using these electrodes, they should be cut above any contamination that might occur when accidentally dipping the tungsten in the weld metal.When used for AC welding they can be ground to a sharp point for better arc control. For medium amperage around 100A it can be beneficial to flatten to very tip to stop it burning off an dropping into the weld pool. Above 150A its generally recommend to ball the tungsten, but it is not always necessary.
