Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® introduced its blue-tipped MultiStrike® thoria-free tungsten electrodes featuring a mix of non-radioactive rare earth elements that eliminate the risk to health posed by radioactive thoriated Tungsten Electrodes.
These tungsten electrodes operate at a lower temperature, and provide 10 times more arc striking capacity than those with thorium. Since thoriated electrodes work at higher temperatures, their oxide additions burn out, or evaporate much faster than MultiStrike’s non-radioactive ingredients.
MultiStrikes® thoria-free tungsten electrodes can be used for welding aluminum with the AC process, as well as steels and alloys with the DC process.
Each electrode packet comes with a traceability number.
