TIG rods range for C-Mn steels

ALTIG SG2 is a copper coated W3Si1/ER70S-6 type solid TIG welding rod, suitable for use mainly with Ar shielding gas.

Product Advantages

✔ Good mechanical properties   
✔ Excellent mechanical properties for low temperature applications (down to -50°C)
✔ Excellent toughness properties for low temperature applications (down to -50°C)

ALTIG SG2 is suitable for welding mild and C-Mn steels and is generally used for the root pass and to support welding when no back pass is possible.

ALTIG SG2 can also be used for welding mild and carbon steels in metal structures. For first passes and bottom chamfer as support passes or in cases where it is impossible to weld on the back.

It meets the classifications:

  • EN ISO 636-A: W 42 4 W3Si1
  • AWS A5.18: ER 70S-6
