Thoriated tungsten electrodes are popular because they weld well, last a long time, and are easy to use. But they contain thorium, a radioactive material that present health risks at elevated exposure levels.
In addition to providing a safe and effective alternative to 2% thoriated tungsten, thorium-free Tri-Mix Tungsten from Diamond Ground Products (Newbury Park, CA) outperform and cost less than E3, multistrike, and rare earth tungstens. Made from three scientifically balanced oxides that promote migration and evaporation rates, the electrodes also provide:
- Reliable arc-striking
- Low burn-off rate
- 35% less power consumption
- 40% prolonged service life
- 50% less set-up costs
- 50% less gas consumption
- 100% reproducible results.
Ten 7-inch electrodes per box; special diameters and lengths available.
