CERIATED “GREY TIP” TUNGSTENS 150MM (PACK OF 10)
A pack of 10 ceriated tungstens (grey tip) 150mm in length. Choose from the dropdown above for Tungsten sizes.
Ceriated tungstens contain a minimum of 97.3% tungsten and between 1.8 and 2.2 % cerium. Often refered to as 2% Ceriated, these tungstens are suited to DC welding at low current settings (for example, thin sheet mild steel) but can also be used in AC TIG welding. Very similar in welding characteristics to 2 % thoriated, ceriated tungstens are best used for welding carbon steel, stainless, nickel alloys and titanium.
2 % Ceriated tungstens are particularly useful for welding small and delicate parts or thin material at low current settings. Ceriated electrodes are not suited to high amperages due to the tendency for oxides to migrate to the heat at the tip, removing the oxide content and nullifying its process benefits.
Suitable for AC and DC TIG welding.
