Argon for Metalfabrication Industry

The inert gas par excellence in welding processes.

The inert gas par excellence

Noble gas, 1.38 times heavier than air, has a low ionization potential, so it can facilitate the formation of an electric arc. Argon has a tendency to concentrate penetration of the weld bead into the base material. It also offers a good influence on the stabilization of the electric arc.
