Which two of tungsten's properties make it the best choice for GTA welding?

To determine

The two properties of tungsten which make it the best choice for GTA welding.

Explanation

GTA Welding: In the Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) process, a non-consumable electrode (tungsten) is used for the arc generation. The melting of the electrode does not take place in this process, although the melting of work takes place at the spot where the arc impacts its surface.

Tungsten electrode- Tungsten electrode is used in GTA welding (gas tungsten arc welding) as a welding electrode. Tungsten electrode is the desired electrode for GTAW, because the tungsten electrode has a high melting point, and it is a non-consumable electrode. The tungsten electrode can easily be alloyed with different types of metals. In the tungsten electrode, thorium oxide is added to increase the current carrying capacity and life of the tungsten electrode...
