Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT) recommends the MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrodes that increase efficiency and reduce the risk to health in welding processes.
With non-radio toxic rare earth elements, MultiStrike Tungsten Electrodes can be used for welding aluminium with the AC process as well as steels and alloys with the DC process.
MultiStrike Tungsten Electrodes contain a mix of non-radioactive rare earth elements, which dramatically lower the working temperature of the tungsten, making it longer lasting than all other tungsten electrodes used for TIG and Plasma welding.
Other tungsten electrodes work at higher temperatures so their oxide additions (mostly radioactive) burn out or evaporate much faster than those non radioactive ingredients in MultiStrike. So much so that they give at least 10 times more arc striking capacity of other tungsten electrodes tested under the same conditions.
With most tungsten electrodes in use still containing radioactive and carcinogenic two percent thorium oxide, MultiStrike provide the TIG and Plasma welder with a safe and “superior” alternative.
