• Tig Welding Stainless Steel

    TIG Welding Stainless Steel Known as 300 series, austenitic stainless steels are the most commonly welded. These chrome nickel steels, in contrast to lower cost stainless have more alloys and are “non magnetic” (Exception, types 310 – 330). Austenitic grades of stainless steel typically contain a minimum of 16-26% chromium...


  • TIG Welding Stainless Steel Basics

    TIG Welding Stainless Steel Basics In comparison with the welding of mild steel, for example, the austenitic stainless steels have several characteristics that require some revision of welding procedures that are considered standard for mild steel. The melting point of the austenitic grades stainless steels is lower, so less heat...


  • Tungsten Electrodes

    Tungsten Electrodes Non-consumable tungsten electrodes for GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding)  or TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, generally are of several types.  Tungsten electrodes types and their typical application can be identified by color coded end marks as follows. Pure Tungsten :  Green 2% Ceriated :  Gray 2% Thoriated : Red...


  • TIG Welding

    TIG Welding Advantages One of the greatest advantages of the TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding or Gas Tungsten Arc welding (GTAW) process is that it will weld more kinds of metals and metal alloys than any other arc welding process. TIG welding can be used to weld most metals, including  aluminum,...


  • The Art of TIG Welding Stainless Steel

    The Art of TIG Welding Stainless Steel When TIG welding stainless steel there are a few points to keep in mind to achieve a cosmetically appealing and sound weld. Because stainless steel does not adequately dissipate heat, maintaining proper heat input when welding is critical. Too much heat can lead...
