HEAVY DUTY M8 MIG TORCH CONTACT TIPS 1.2MM – MB36 & MB501
Replacement or spare 1.2mm heavy duty contact tips for Binzel style MIG torches (M8 thread). Available as a blister pack of 10 tips or a bulk pack of 25 contact tips (choose using drop down above).
These heavy duty, high performance contact tips are made from a copper alloy, including chromium and zirconium, for added heat resistance. The high heat resistance of these contacts tips means that they have a longer working life.
Considered by many as the industry standard of MIG torch, the Binzel (BZL) style allows the user to easily source consumable parts ensuring an economical service of the torch.
It’s important to have the right size MIG torch contact tip. The contact tip is where electricity is conducted onto the MIG wire. The wire must be in contact with the tip to ensure a reliable current flows onto the wire. Over time, with the MIG wire passing through the tip, the hole in which the wire passes through gets eroded. Therefore, the contact tip is considered a wear part and should be changed periodically.
