Is more likely to be achieved when the T5 condition is specified (air quenched). For hollows, the minimum thickness will probably be some 25% higher than for nonhollows.

Much higher welding speeds are possible than with stick welding of steel. 5 m/s on steel. 3 TIG welding TIG is an alternating current (AC) process. The water-cooled torch has a non-consumable tungsten electrode, and as with MIG it delivers a flow of argon. The filler wire is held in the other hand and fed in separately. TIG requires more skill than MIG, both to control the arc length and to feed in the filler. One disadvantage is that the operator may inadvertently let the torch dwell in one position, causing a local build-up of heat and hence an enlarged HAZ.
