HFT offers longer-lasting options with their latest MultiStrike Tungsten Electrodes


Recognizing the risk to health posed by the radio toxic red tipped thoriated tungsten electrodes that are in wide use in the welding industry, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT®) have developed MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrodes that are free from the potentially harmful thoria.

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.
