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.
Influence of doping on the characteristics 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.
Electrodes with rare earth (mixed oxides). In comparison to throrited electrodes this electrode is less harmful to the environment and not radioactive. The electrodes offer excellent ignition characteristics and consistent welding properties. They are universal and suitable for all applications in the whole range of DC and AC welding for non-alloyed and high-alloyed steel, aluminium, titanium, nickel, copper and magnesium alloys. Because of their great ignition properties they are also suitable for automated welding. Due to the low electrode temperature, they offer an increased current carrying capacity and longer service life than thoriated electrodes. For more information on E3 click here.
Lanthanated electrodes are suitable for applications in DC and AC welding. Their main areas of application are the welding of non-alloyed and high-alloyed steel, aluminium, titanium, nickel, copper and magnesium alloys. These electrodes are also suitable for the use in micro-plasma welding.
By adding cerium oxide (CeO2), these electrodes have an increased capacity compared to pure tungsten electrodes, however the WCe electrodes have a lower capacity than the E3® and WL electrodes. Main areas of application are in the DC and AC welding of non-alloyed and high-alloyed steel, aluminium, titanium, nickel, copper and magnesium alloys in the low and middle current range.
Tungsten electrodes with the addition of zirconium have a lower risk of contaminating the weld from deposits of tungsten. The main area of application for this electrode is AC welding. They are limited in their suitability for DC welding.

Product Description:TZM alloy is a molybdenum-based alloys commonly used in a high-temperature alloys containing 0.50% titanium, 0.08% zirconium, the remaining 0.02% carbon molybdenum alloy. TZM is stronger than pure molybdenum and possesses a higher recrystallization temperature and better creep resistance.
TZM alloy advantages:
1) TZM alloy has good mechanical properties, in particular its mechanical properties are better than that of pure molybdenum at high temperatures. Table 2 (Ti0.5 / Zr0.1) TZM alloy mechanical properties, Table 3 TZM (Ti0.5-Zr0.08) the tensile strength and elongation at high temperatures.
2) TZM alloy (molybdenum zirconium-titanium alloy) also has good weldability, the material can be well H11 steel welding. Meanwhile TZM alloy is resistant to liquid metals such as Zn corrosion. It is cold-worked by conventional methods. In the case of cooling lubricants available cemented carbide or high speed steel cutting tools for machining.
