    If your going to post deffinitions of tungsten the least you can do is do all the types.

    Well I did not know what the differences were between the different types that you listed so I did a search so I would know. Then I thought I would pass the info I found here so that others like me will learn. Sorry I only listed those that you listed in your first post. One site didn't list any others either

    So with that I will let you lead the way by educating us on the other types.

    Junes, chill dude.
    Everyone should have the opportunity to add something if they feel like it is worthwhile. And it was, whether it's important to you or not.

    Let's all try and get along.

    I was being sarcastic there buddy no worries. Those are the exotic crazy expensive tungsten. They are cryrogenically treated differnent percentages of thoriated and zirc stuff that's not used unless your in a lab.

    Tri-mix is ivory colored
    cryo-t is manly pink
    2% lanthanated is blue
    zirconiated is brown.
    There's a few other old school ones I heard of but I'm pretty sure they don't even make them anymore. But these are the comercaialy avaliable ones but they do
    make custom blends.

    From your earlier post you list the following:

    "cryo-t is manly pink"

    I'm trying to learn as much as I can here, and I just have to ask, what the heck is "manly pink"???? eek2icon

    Nice chart.

    Watch your cups!! I was trying to TIG today and the arc wondering. After a check I found that the cup was not centered with the tungston. This was not a new cup, I had used it before, and didf not notice anyihing. Go figure???

    you could add the size filler rod per material thickness in another column.

    GDay All,

    I'd like to add a small point, if you are using an inverter type machine, you should NOT use pure tungsten electrodes. Instead, use 2% Ceriated electrodes.

    In most cases, 2% Ceriated can be used for steel and aluminium (aluminum).
