WZ8 0.8% Zirconiated Tungsten Electrodes
Zirconiated Tungsten has good performance in AC welding. It easily forms and retains a balled tip at the end of the tungsten which is ideal to give the radiating arc suited to AC TIG welding. Zirconiated tungsten electrode produces an extremely stable arc and resists tungsten spitting. Zirconiated tungsten has a high resistance to contamination with excellent performance in high load AC welding. Zirconiated Tungsten is most commonly used for AC welding of aluminium and magnesium alloys. Zirconiated is not recommended for DC welding.
