If you’re having a problem with MIG weld spatter sticking to your mig gun nozzle then you might want to try using a non stick spray or a nozzle dip.
In this post I’m going to show you 3 ways to keep weld spatter from sticking to your gun.
Watch and enjoy!
There isn’t really a secret to keeping all the mig weld spatter from sticking, but these are the best ways to reduce the weld spatter.
You can try one of these 3 methods to remove or reduce your mig weld spatter
- Method 1: Use the needle noses of your mig pliers to clean out your nozzle.
- Method 2: Spray your nozzle with non stick spray to reduce mig weld spatter from sticking
- Method 3: Buy a commercial non stick dip to prevent any spatter from sticking
I’m just cautious about getting stuff in the gas outlet of the mig gun, which could prevent gas from flowing.
I would just be on the side of caution and go with a non stick dip.
With a non stick dip you are only getting the non stick substance where it needs to be.
How to reduce the mig weld spatter on your workpiece
If you’ve been mig welding for any period of time you know that even if you get your settings just right, you’re still going to get mig weld spatter around your welds.
This can be undesireable on projects that you want to keep clean.
There are sprays available that are specifically made to spray your workpiece before welding.
After the weld is made you simply wipe off the weld spatter.
Pretty cool I think.
