Argon (Ar) is one of the most widely used welding gases, especially as a shielding gas in metal inert gas (MIG) welding applications. Argon provides stability because it won’t react with other substances to form chemical compounds that could impact the weld quality.
While argon can function well as a pure welding gas, adding other gases can add significant value to the process and improve the outcome. Introducing helium (He) and carbon dioxide (CO2) will stabilize the arc, increase heat input and improve puddle fluidity when welding on low alloy steels and carbon. Adding helium can also help prevent oxidation on metal surfaces.
A Meritus Gas Partners supplier can provide high-quality argon-helium-carbon dioxide welding gas to enhance your business’s processes. You’ll also receive reliable support from a local company you can trust.
