The following discontinuities are peculiar to the TIG welding process. These

discontinuities occur in most metals welded by the process including aluminum and

stainless steels. The TIG method of welding produces a clean homogeneous weld

which when radiographed is easily interpreted.

Tungsten inclusions. Tungsten is a brittle and inherently dense material used in the

electrode in tungsten inert gas welding. If improper welding procedures are used,

tungsten may be entrapped in the weld. Radiographically, tungsten is more dense

than aluminum or steel; therefore, it shows as a lighter area with a distinct outline on

the radiograph.

Oxide inclusions are usually visible on the surface of material being welded

(especially aluminum). Oxide inclusions are less dense than the surrounding

materials and, therefore, appear as dark irregularly shaped discontinuities in the

radiograph.
