Argon is a gas that has no colour, odour or taste. But that doesn’t stop it from getting lots of attention. Argon is known as one of the seven noble gases and is highly prized for its properties as a chemically inert substance. When placed in an argon gas cylinder, the non-flammable and non-toxic powers of this noble gas are concentrated in an easy to use way, improving work quality and increasing safety levels.
High quality guaranteed with an argon gas cylinder
The main industrial application for argon gas is as a shielding agent during welding and other high-temperature processes. The most common argon welding processes are tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding and metal inert gas (MIG) welding. These are typically used for both aluminium and steel welding applications.
Both of these processes use consumable and non-consumable electrodes to produce the weld and usually require an argon gas cylinder to supply gas to protect the process. Because it can’t catch fire and ignite and won’t produce toxic fumes, argon stops atmospheric gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, and even water vapour from interfering with the weld.
If any of these atmospheric gases come into contact with the weld, they can degrade its quality and even increase the time it takes to complete the work.
