About GTP® Tungsten Products
GTP Tungsten Rod is manufactured by powder-metallurgical manufacturing techniques. Hydrogen-reduced tungsten powder, produced by Global Tungsten & Powders Corporation to rigidly controlled purity, particle size, and size distribution. The raw tungsten is consolidated by pressing and sintering the material into billets, which are then worked by rolling or swaging them into rods. Smaller sizes are produced by subsequent drawing. This tightly controlled manufacturing process and the procedures and specifications that have been tested and proven for more that 25 years is what differentiates a super high-quality tungsten material from the vast supply of generic reverse engineered material that is all over the market today.
GTP® is the only U.S. manufacturer of tungsten electrodes, and all SYLVANIA® GTP tungsten electrodes comply with AWS Specification A5.12 98. For details, download the Technical Bulletin (.pdf).
