Engineered blend of oxides outperforms other electrode types.
E3® Electrodes Run Much Cooler, Extending Tip Life!
E3® electrodes are shown to run approximately 900° Kelvin or 1650° F cooler than thoriated tungsten at the same energy output.
The 2 electrodes pictured were photographed at the same energy output.
Clearly you can see the E3® electrode has a much smaller heat affected zone.
