    Default Rg-60 Filler For Tig

    can i use RG-60 filler rod for tig welding mild steel ??
    my local supply shop said i can, but when i use it compared to ER70S2 filler, it looks kind of different.
    i had some laying around and decided to try it out, but went ahead and bought some ER70S2 filler to be safe.
    just practicing for now, not welding anything critical.
    thanks....

    The jist of it is, yes you can use it, but no you should not.. It's is an oxy/fuel welding filler and not suitable for tig work.

    The slightly longer answer is that O/A filler metal does not contain the deoxidizers that MIG/TIG wire contain. O/A welding keeps the workpiece hot enough long enough that the COx can evolve out of the weld; TIG does not. The potential result is porosity in your weld.
