About Argon blends Industrial use

Argon either pure or in combination with carbon dioxide, oxygen, hydrogen or helium is the most widely used gas in welding applications.

Agas National supplies Argon gas mixtures; formulated to provide increases in productivity and cost efficiency. Less spatter, improved welding speeds, reduced-set up and clean-up times and the reduction in consumption costs, i.e. less gas and MIG wire used, these are all factors that lower your overall operating costs.

We are also pleased to announce that we can supply the new "Gx" size gas cylinder for Argon gases. The new "Gx" size high-pressure gas cylinder is designed for EXTRA gas capacity (> 10 m3) so you have fewer cylinder change over’s and more time spent on those all-important jobs.

The new bottles now come with a quick action on/off lever, 
designed so in the event of a knock or bump the lever automatically reverts to the off position. This turns off the gas supply instantly at the regulator outlet.

Which Argon is best for me?

Arcal 1 (Pure Argon) – For aluminium and stainless steel Mig or Tig
Arcal 21 – For Mig welding, most thickness Steel
Arcal 5 – For Mig welding, some benefits for Galvanized steel.
