DeepTIG and its formulations are TIG welding fluxes that increase weld penetration by as much as 300%, greatly increasing the quality of the welding joint. In addition to increasing penetration, DeepTIG™ cuts TIG welding times in half in most applications.
The following image exhibits the benefits of using a DeepTIG™ flux. Both welds were made in the exact same way, but the one on the right used SS-7.

How DeepTIG is applied to a butt joint.
DeepTIG™ formulations have many benefits for TIG welding in both manual and automatic applications. Benefits include:
- Increased Weld Penetration – Increase weld penetration by as much as 300% in most applications. This greatly improves productivity and reduces weld joint volume.
- Increased Weld Quality – Reduce heat-to-heat variation in weld penetration and also reduce distortion in the welds. Promote grain refinement in some cases.
- Reduce Welding Time – Weld times can be reduced by as much as 50% in most applications, thereby dramatically speeding production and efficiency.
- Lower Preparation Costs – Full penetration can be achieved with a square edged closed-butt joint. This configuration can reduce prep time, filler material costs, distortion, and heat input.
- Lower Manufacturing Costs – Lower costs by reducing heat input, weld time, power requirements, and labor needs.
- Low Risk – Multiple industries have both tested and confirmed both performance and cost saving advantages of DeepTIG™.

DeepTIG™ formulations were developed and tested extensively by Edison Welding Institute (EWI), and the Navy Joining Center (NJC). EWI is located in Columbus, Ohio, and is considered one of the world’s premier welding research institutes.
Superior Flux & Mfg. Co. manufactures and supplies the DeepTIG™ products under agreement with EWI.
