CarbonElite Jointed Gouging Electrodes - 5/8 in. x 17 in.

CarbonElite® Jointed Gouging Electrodes - KP3803 - 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4



CarbonElite arc gouging carbon electrodes are made of a proprietary composition to deliver high efficiency metal removal. The copper coated carbons offer excellent arc stability and generate less heat for a controlled melt off rate. Available in pointed, jointed, flat and hollow electrode types for use in numerous semi-automatic or automatic applications.


  • Used primarily in automatic gouging applications but can also be used manually
  • Large, long duration gouges commonly seen in the shipbuilding or foundry industries
  • Circular gouges on pipe and tanks
