Argon

The third most abundant chemical in earth’s atmosphere, argon is chemically inert and stable in all but the most extreme conditions. This inert stability makes argon a useful tool for shielding products from atmospheric contaminants.

Industry Usage of Argon

Welding

Used as a shielding gas in MIG welding, and to stabilize arcs in arc welding.

Food and Beverage

Displaces oxygen and moisture-bearing air in packaging to preserve freshness.

Maintenance and Repair

An important shielding gas for welding equipment on-site.

Hobby/Artisanal Welding

It’s not about how much you need, but the quality you want. Whether you’re going through a cylinder of gas in one night shift, or over the course of months while you put together your brand new piece – we have the gas you need to get the job done.

HVAC

An inert gas, argon is used in MIG welding in all your HVAC jobs.

Construction

An important shielding gas for on-site welding.
