  • Looking for some Tungsten Advice/ Info

    What works well with what? What are you using for your applications?

    Why use Zirconiated, what does it do, benefits, Tip configuration, ect.

    Thanks in advance

    I use 2% thoriated for all my steel apps and Pure for all the aluminum.

    Just trying to start a lead

      I use 2% thoriated on carbon steels,stainless,titanium,inkonel and zirconium on aluminum and magnesium I like the zirc. better than the pure because it carries more current and doesn't break down as easy as the pure. I pretty much stick to these two I sometimes use 1% thoriated if the 2% isn't available. I don't care for the ceriated or lanthanated tungstens much seems like they don't keep the tip as well as the thoriated. I am curious to see what others think of the lanth. and ceria. tungstens. Thanks.
