Wolfram WP Elektroda
For tungsten inert gas welding (TIG), the non-fusing and temperature resistant tungsten electrode, in addition to the torch, the energy source and the inert gas, is a major factor for obtaining optimum results.
The following must be taken into consideration when selecting the tungsten electrode:
- Type of tungsten electrode
- Diameter of electrode
- Quality of the polished section and roughness of the electrode
- Tip geometry of the electrode
Undoped electrodes – consist of pure tungsten. The main area of application for this type of electrode is the AC welding of aluminum alloys with excellent arc stability. The WP-electrodes are not suitable for DC welding.
