Refractory Metal-Faced Electrodes
The TUFFALOY copper-tungsten, tungsten and molybdenum
-faced tips listed here withstand greater heat and pressure, at the expense of some conductivity. Besides being used for spot welding high resistance base metals, they are useful in achieving “heat balance” when welding dissimilar metals. (The higher resistance electrode is used against the lower resistance, or thinner, member, to help contain the heat generated.) They have the same diameters and tapers as the standard straight tips in this catalog. Bodies are of Class 2 alloy. Lengths other than those shown can be ordered.
