TIG Filler Rods

Commercial welders know that the Filler Rods are very important to the TIG (GTAW) Welding as the filler rod is fed into the molten puddle by hand filling in the puddle in order to create a stronger metal bond or puddle to join the metal pieces. That is why it is very important to work with the right filler rod based on the metal that you are welding whether this is aluminum or mild steel, stainless steel, copper or bronze, and other exotic metals. It is also necessary to use the right tungsten to insure that you are properly setup to weld your metal.

Pick the Right Filler Rod for Steel or Aluminum

LONGEVITY Company provides filler rods of high quality and at reasonable prices. Please check the selection of filler rods that we provide and decide which is the best rod application that you should use for your weld. Choosing the right filler rod is very important for the matter density and the strength of your weld. Pick the right rod by determining the diameter of the filler rod that is needed, by checking the thickness of the material that will be weld. Here are some pointers in deciding how to choose the correct filler rod for your weld.

 

Check these 6 Points when selecting Filler Rods:

1. 4043 is a general filler rod, usually used for aluminum welding.
2. 5356 is perfect for 5xxx series aluminum. If you are planning on anodizing the finished piece, this rod should be used when making the weld.
3. ER70S-6 is used for welding mild steel.
4. ER70S-2 is recommended for welding 4130 chrome moly tubing in many applications.
5. ER80S-D2 is for welding 4130 chrome moly tubing in case a higher strength weld is needed.
6. 1/16” diameter filler rod to be used when material is 1/8” and less thick. 3/32” diameter filler rod should be used for 1/8” and thicker material.
