Argon pure gas and argon mixtures are commonly used in shielded arc processes for welding aluminum, stainless steel, bronze and copper. Used as a shielding gas in arc welding, root shielding and plasma cutting applications, argon provides an inert atmosphere to prevent oxidation or other chemical changes that would be detrimental to the weld. In steel manufacturing, argon prevents interaction between liquid metal and the surrounding atmosphere. Air Liquide offers ARCAL™ brand pure argon and argon mixtures, with four ready-to-weld products that cover practically any welding application. Each one is designed to be easy to use, reliable and efficient, no matter when and where you need it.
