    Some of the material suppliers offer metallurgy support, contact your supplier and see if they can help. Are you just curious or is there a specific reason you ask?

    Are you using TIG, and are you talking about that stuff that looks like scum or kind of a skin on top if the weld?

    Clean everything, including the rod, and use clean gloves see if that helps.

    I have never seen that and yup if you are seeing stuff like that it is not good. The weld should be colorful and pretty.Change your filler, make sure you are using the proper set up, gas, cup, tungsten, etc. Send a pic of said weld.
