Brand New Best Weld Tungsten Electrode 1/16" X 7" Ground E3 Pkg/10 Electrodes.. Replaces 2% thoriated Tungsten in all applications and Pure Tungsten in many applications. Purple TIG Tungsten - Replacement for Thoriated Tungstens
Sold in Packs of 10The new tungsten electrode that will eventually become the number one tungsten as Thoriated electrodes has been discontinued by many suppliers.The purple tungsten really is a true non-radioactive alternative to the thoriated tungsten electrode. Why?
The E3 electrode as it is known has many benefits!
  • The electrode tip remains cooler than its thoriated cousin
  • It possesses superior repeatable ignition characteristics
  • Has increased arc stability
  • Benefits from reduced burn off
  • Can carry a higher current than the alternatives
  • Improved tip degradtion of the electrode tip
For example - when using the same current density the E3 electrodes are around 900 degrees C less than a 2% Th (Red Tip) tungsten. Certainly not something to be sniffed at.Can be used in Ac or Dc welding
