CleanCut™ Silver Plasma Cutting Electrode

A Quick Overview: Copper VS. Silver

CleanCut™ Silver Plasma Cutting Electrode

Copper Plasma Cutting Electrodes

Manufacturers and welders have used copper as a source for plasma cutting electrodes for years. As technology has progressed, we’ve found that these are the cause for many consumable change-outs. Copper has a low heat tolerance compared to other metals, this means that as you operate your CNC plasma machine regularly, the heat from your torch is eating away at your electrodes, causing damage to your other consumables and affecting cut quality.

When the electrode expels molten copper and hafnium onto the inside wall of the nozzle and shield, it ruins your consumables and requires more downtime for change-outs.

Silver Versus Copper Hafnium Wear

CleanCut™ Silver Plasma Cutting Electrode Benefits

  1. CleanCut™ Silver plasma cutting electrodes have about 20% more thermal conductivity than their copper counterparts.
  2. Silver tipped electrodes can be used until the hafnium pit-depth is approximately 2 mm. Compare this to copper electrodes that must be replaced when the hafnium pit depth is 1 mm – a shorter usable life.
  3. Upgrading to our CleanCut™ Silver Electrode saves you the hassle of constantly changing out your consumables, saving you time and money.


CleanCut™ High Velocity Nozzle Benefits:

  • High-velocity ultra-smooth cuts
  • Less back spatter, dross and unintended bevel
  • Less grinding, machining and part clean up
