  • TIG welding electrodes usually contain small quantities of metallic oxides which can offer the following benefits: - Facilitate arc starting - Increase arc stability - Improve current carrying capacity of the electrode - Reduce the risk of weld contamination - Increase electrode life
  • Oxides used are primarily zirconium, thorium, lanthanum or cerium
  • Additions are 1% - 4%, improve arc initiation, especially when direct current (DC) welding is employed
  • Thorium oxide (thoria), effective in terms of long life and thermal efficiency
  • Zirconium oxide (zirconia) has been commonly used for alternating (AC) TIG welding, welding aluminum
  • Electrode length: 7"
  • Each package contains 10 electrodes; 0.8% Zirconiated:
  • Excellent for AC welding due to the higher arc stability
  • High-resistance to weld pool contamination
  • Excellent balled end retention
  • Handles higher current with less spitting
  • Better arc starts and arc stability than pure tungsten;

NOTE: Due to unexpected demand, COVID-19 Provincial Guidelines and shortage of staff, lead time for shipping products will be longer than usual. We apologise for the inconvenience.

Shipping rates are calculated based on the product's weight, dimensions and the shipping address. Rates are automatically calculated by Canada Post and are non-negotiable. For larger items that Canada Post does not handle, we have a flat rate for freight charge. Products that are in stock are generally shipped in 1-2 days from ordering. Shipping to remote areas or areas our regulars shippers do not service may be subject to additional freight charges. Some items have a $25 Dangerous Goods surcharge, for which you will receive an additional invoice after purchase. These goods include (but not limited to): fire extinguishers, chemicals, flammables, explosives, batteries, etc. We can ship to PO Boxes, but it requires Canada Post rather than our regular couriers, so that will add a few days to the delivery date. Also, we cannot ship any goods that are on this Canada Post list to PO Boxes:
