Plansee SE Datasheets for Electrodes and Electrode Materials

Electrodes and electrode materials are metals and other substances used as the makeup of electrical components. They are used to make contact with a nonmetallic part of a circuit, and are the materials in a system through which an electrical current is transferred.

Product Name Notes
Erosion Electrodes -- SPARKAL® Extrusion presses are used to form non-ferrous metals such as brass, copper-nickel and aluminum-bronze, as well as stainless steel, into rods, wires or tubes. The metal blank is first heated...
Molybdenum Glass Melting Electrodes Glass melting electrodes must withstand extremely high temperatures and aggressive glass melts. Molybdenum from Plansee is the right material for these challenging conditions. Melting point of 2 620 °C (4...
Tungsten Electrodes If a voltage is applied at the anode and cathode then a light-emitting arc is generated. During operation, the tips of the electrodes must withstand temperatures of 1 800 to...
Resistance Welding Electrodes In the resistance welding process, the parts to be joined are pressed together and heated by an electric current until pools of molten material form at individual points between them.
TIG Welding Electrodes Whenever high-alloy steels or aluminium materials have to be joined, uniform, clean weld connections are essential. With tungsten-inert gas (TIG) welding, that's not a problem. In this process, an arc...
