    Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding
    Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding is a form of arc welding used particularly in applications where high quality and precision is required. The welding arc is formed between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and shielded by inert gas. If filler metal is required it must be added separately to the weld pool.
    TIG welding produces high quality, clean welds and can be used on the widest range of metals. It is particularly suitable for difficult welds such as those in curved or S-shaped workpieces, and in applications where the weld must have a high quality finish. TIG welding delivers clean, attractive welds with low smoke and less spatter. Welds require little finishing and are strong, ductile and corrosion resistant.
    TIG welding is a slower process than some other welding methods and requires a very high level of skill. Like MIG welding it can be extremely difficult to carry out away from a controlled workshop environment.
