Stainless steel rods are for use in DC TIG mode.
This standard grade is 316L and features a low carbon content and is corrosion resistant, other grades are available.
Aluminium TIG rods are for welding in AC TIG mode.
The most popular grades used are 4043a and 5356, other more specialist grades are available.
