Description:  Sylvania GTP offers this uncommon radioactive tungsten formula which performs similarly to 2% Thoriated.  Good arc stability and current capacity.  Vapors, grinding dust, and disposal of thorium dioxide raise health, safety, and environmental concerns.  Use only when contractually required by FAR specification.
Note:  No Certs available for Close-out Tungsten
Warning: Thorium is radioactive. When grinding thoriated tungsten electrodes, use personal respiratory protection and control the dust at the source with exhaust ventilation.

I tried 1% thoriated a couple of months ago and prefer it over 2% Thoriated.
