1.1% AL2O3 in Copper. Dispersion Strengthened Copper C15760, RWMA Class 20. The most cost effective cap electrode available for resistance welding applications.

Cost savings

Nitrode® delivers costs savings when compared with conventional electrodes.

Longer life

Adjusting heat-programs allows you to take advantage of the longer life of Nitrode electrodes.

No other cap electrode can match Nitrode for its cost-effective, high quality performance in resistance-welding applications.

Advantages of Nitrode® include:

  • Longer weld life
  • Non-stick
  • Resists mushrooming
  • Reduces energy requirements
  • Works on all steels
  • Smoother start-ups


All Luvata materials are fully traceable. Nitrode electrodes are easily recognizable by their single, evenly spaced knurls.


Luvata's Nitrode® cap is a cold-formed alloy of copper dispersion strengthened with Aluminum Oxide.

Nitrode's physical properties

  • Hardness at ambient temperature: Minimum 75 HRB
  • Conductivity: Minimum 75% IACS
