    2% thoriated tungsten electrodes contain a minimum of 97.30% tungsten
    and 1.70 to 2.20% thorium. They are the most commonly used electrodes
    today and are preferred for their longevity and ease of use. Thorium
    increases the electron emission qualities of the electrode, which
    improves arc starts and allows for a higher current carrying capacity.
    This electrode operates far below its melting temperature, which
    results in a considerably lower rate of consumption and eliminates arc
    wandering for greater stability. It also features a lower level of weld
    contamination than other electrodes.



    Unlike pure tungsten, these electrodes are only for specialty type AC
    welding (thin gauge aluminum or materials less than .060-in.), but they
    are exceptional for DC electrode negative or straight polarity on
    carbon and stainless steel, nickel and titanium applications.



    During manufacturing, thorium is evenly dispersed throughout the
    electrode. This evenness allows the electrode to maintain a sharpened
    edge—the ideal electrode shape for welding thin steel. Sharpening the
    electrode’s point, however, should be done with great care. Thorium is
    radioactive; therefore, you must always follow manufacture’s warnings,
    instructions and the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for its use.

    Zirconiated tungsten electrodes (AWS classification EWZr-1) contain a
    minimum of 99.10% tungsten and .15 to .40% zirconium. A Zirconiated
    tungsten electrode produces an extremely stable arc and resists
    tungsten spitting. It is ideal for AC welding as it retains a balled
    tip and has a high resistance to contamination. Its current carrying
    capability is equal to or greater than thoriated tungsten. Under no
    circumstances is zirconiated recommended for DC welding.

    Ceriated tungsten electrodes contain a minimum of 97.30% tungsten and
    1.80 to 2.20% cerium. These electrodes perform best in DC welding at
    low current settings but can be used proficiently in AC or DC
    processes. With its excellent arc starts at low amperages, ceriated
    tungsten has become popular in such applications as orbital tube and
    pipe manufacturing, thin sheet metal work or jobs where small and
    delicate parts are welded. Like thorium, it is best used to weld carbon
    and stainless steels, nickel alloys and titanium, making it an obvious
    replacement for 2% thoriated electrodes.



    Ceriated tungsten features slightly different electrical
    characteristics than thorium but most operators won’t be able to tell
    the difference. Using ceriated electrodes at higher amperages is not
    recommended. In these situations, the oxides will migrate quickly to
    the heat at the tip, removing the oxide content and nullifying its
    process benefits.

    Lanthanated tungsten electrodes contain a minimum of 97.80% tungsten
    and 1.30 to 1.70% lanthanum, or lanthana. These electrodes have
    excellent arc starting, low-burn-off rate, good arc stability and
    excellent re-ignition characteristics—many of the same advantages as
    ceriated electrodes. lanthanated electrodes also closely resemble the
    conductivity characteristics of 2% thoriated tungsten, meaning, in some
    cases, it can replace 2% thoriated without having to make significant
    welding program changes.



    Lanthanated tungsten electrodes are ideal if you want to optimize your
    welding capabilities. Lanthanated electrodes work well on AC or DC
    electrode negative with a pointed end or they can be balled for use
    with AC sine wave power sources. The lanthana is dispersed evenly
    throughout the entire length of the electrode during manufacturing. It
    also maintains a sharpened point well, which is an advantage for
    welding steel and stainless steel on DC or the AC from squarewave power
    sources.



    Unlike thoriated tungsten, these electrodes are suitable for AC welding
    and, like ceriated electrodes, allow for the arc to be started and
    maintained at lower voltages. AC Compared to pure tungsten, the
    addition of 1.5% lanthana increases the maximum carrying capacity by
    approximately 50% for a given size electrode.

    The new tungsten electrode that will eventually become the number one
    tungsten as Thoriated electrodes become harder to import due to the
    radioactive content.



    The purple tungsten really is a true non-radioactive alternative to the
    thoriated tungsten electode. Why?

    The E3 electrode as it is known has many benefits!


    • The electrode tip remains cooler than its thoriated cousin

    • It possesses superior repeatable ignition characteristics

    • Has increased arc stability

    • Benefits from reduced burn off

    • Can carry a higher current than the alternatives

    • Improved tip degradtion of the electrode tip



    For example - when using the same current density the E3 electrodes are
    around 900 degrees C less than a 2% Th (Red Tip) tungsten. Certainly
    not something to be sniffed at.

    The lanthanated tungsten electrodes are becoming more popular in the
    circle of welding in the world soon after they were developed, because
    of their good welding performance. The electric conductivity of
    lanthanated tungsten electrode is most closed to that of 2% thoriated
    Tungsten electrodes. Welders can easily replace thoriated tungsten
    electrodes with lanthanated tungsten electrodes at either AC or DC and
    not have to make any welding program changes.



    The radioactivity from thoriated tungsten electrodes can thus be
    avoided. Another advantage of lanthanated tungsten electrodes is being
    able to be bear high current and having the lowest burn-loss rate.



    2% Lanthanated Tungsten electrodes contains 2% Lanthanum oxide (LaO 3 )
    that is also a non-radioactive material. It has good welding
    performance. Its electric conductivity is closed to that of the 2%
    thoriated Tungsten electrodes. Lanthanated electrodes operate at a
    slightly different arc voltage than Thoriated or Ceriated electrodes.
    Were developed around the same time as Ceriated Tungsten to help combat
    the increasing awareness of the radioactivity of Thoriated Tungsten
    electrodes.

    Zirconiated tungsten electrodes (AWS classification EWZr-1) contain a
    minimum of 99.10% tungsten and .15 to .40% zirconium. A Zirconiated
    tungsten electrode produces an extremely stable arc and resists
    tungsten spitting. It is ideal for AC welding as it retains a balled
    tip and has a high resistance to contamination. Its current carrying
    capability is equal to or greater than thoriated tungsten. Under no
    circumstances is zirconiated recommended for DC welding.

    2% thoriated tungsten electrodes contain a minimum of 97.30% tungsten
    and 1.70 to 2.20% thorium. They are the most commonly used electrodes
    today and are preferred for their longevity and ease of use. Thorium
    increases the electron emission qualities of the electrode, which
    improves arc starts and allows for a higher current carrying capacity.
    This electrode operates far below its melting temperature, which
    results in a considerably lower rate of consumption and eliminates arc
    wandering for greater stability. It also features a lower level of weld
    contamination than other electrodes.



    Unlike pure tungsten, these electrodes are only for specialty type AC
    welding (thin gauge aluminum or materials less than .060-in.), but they
    are exceptional for DC electrode negative or straight polarity on
    carbon and stainless steel, nickel and titanium applications.



    During manufacturing, thorium is evenly dispersed throughout the
    electrode. This evenness allows the electrode to maintain a sharpened
    edge—the ideal electrode shape for welding thin steel. Sharpening the
    electrode’s point, however, should be done with great care. Thorium is
    radioactive; therefore, you must always follow manufacture’s warnings,
    instructions and the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for its use.

    Ceriated tungsten electrodes contain a minimum of 97.30% tungsten and
    1.80 to 2.20% cerium. These electrodes perform best in DC welding at
    low current settings but can be used proficiently in AC or DC
    processes. With its excellent arc starts at low amperages, ceriated
    tungsten has become popular in such applications as orbital tube and
    pipe manufacturing, thin sheet metal work or jobs where small and
    delicate parts are welded. Like thorium, it is best used to weld carbon
    and stainless steels, nickel alloys and titanium, making it an obvious
    replacement for 2% thoriated electrodes.



    Ceriated tungsten features slightly different electrical
    characteristics than thorium but most operators won’t be able to tell
    the difference. Using ceriated electrodes at higher amperages is not
    recommended. In these situations, the oxides will migrate quickly to
    the heat at the tip, removing the oxide content and nullifying its
    process benefits.
