DGP Offers FREE Alternatives To Hazardous Thoriated Tungsten
Welders have used 2% Thoriated tungsten in welding applications for decades. However, recent studies have proven that Thorium itself is a hazardous material – a naturally occurring radioactive element further identified as a carcinogen, or "cancer causing".
In fact, according to the American Welding Society, "Thorium is radioactive and may present hazardous by external and internal exposure. If alternatives are technically feasible, they should be used."
"The Tungsten Electrode Experts" at DGP offer alternatives.
Non-radioactive High performance TRI MIX, 2% Lanthanated, and 2% Ceriated tungsten are in stock, ready to be shipped, and affordably priced. In most welding applications, these types of tungsten outperform Thorium with longer tungsten life, better arc starting, and, in some cases, higher amperage capacity.
