2% Thoriated Tungsten contains a nominal 2 wt-% or thorium oxide (ThO2)
that is evenly dispersed throughout the entire length of the Tungsten. The
most common type of Tungsten used today. Provides excellent resistance
from weld pool contamination while at the same time offers the welder
easier arc starting capabilities and a more stable arc. Generally used for
DC electrode negative or straight polarity applications such as carbon &
stainless steels, nickel alloys and titanium.
