Yttrium-Tungsten Electrode produces a slim arc and a level of compression when used in welding. Moreover it has a deer melting depth in medium or hith current. It is mainly used in the military aviatic and astronautic industries.
When the tungsten electrode is welded, the arc beam is slender and the degree of compression is large. At medium and large currents, the penetration depth is relatively large and is mainly used in the military industry and the aerospace industry. Zirconium oxide is doped with tungsten to produce a zirconium tungsten electrode.
