Electrochemical cleaning of molybdenum immediately prior to spotwelding has been found to improve adherence of both tungsten and tantalum to molybdenum. Normally electrochemical cleaning is accomplished by immersion in a large bath. We have had excellent results cleaning a small area under a single drop of cleaning solution immediately prior to spotwelding.
