    Tungsten Inert Gas Also known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding < GATW>

    A type of welder and welding process which utilizes a tungsten electrode combined with an inert gas sheild < Pure Argon or an Ar/He mix >. Tig differs from Mig in manys ways one of the most radical being that the filler rod is typically held in the hand opposite the electrode and introduced to the weld pool manually. TIG Welding Offers greate control over the heat of weld and is therefore the welding process of choice on most "exotic" metals < Al, Mg, Stainless Steel, and exotic steel alloys. >
