Newbury Park, CA, June 05, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- 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.”
Non-radioactive High performance TRI MIX, 2% Lanthanated, and 2% Ceriated tungsten are alternatives that are readily available due to advances in tungsten technology. In many cases, these types of tungsten outperform Thorium with longer tungsten life, better arc starting, and higher amperage capacity.
