Uses & Applications for Argon Gas by Industry

– Welding & Metal Fabrication

Argon is used to create an inert shield gas to enhance arc stability and characteristics required of gas metal arc welding. Additionally, it is used as the primary gas for the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) process.

  • Welding Processes
– Metal Production

Used to maintain consistency and temperature, argon prevents oxidation during processing. It also removes carbon monoxide and reduces chromium losses during the Argon-Oxygen Decarburization stainless steel refining process.

  • Argon Oxygen Decarburization
– Automotive & Transportation Equipment

Argon is used in combination with other gases to weld a wide range of auto parts. It also provides an oxygen and nitrogen-free environment for annealing processes. Additionally, it is an essential component in airbags.

  • Heat Treating
  • Parts Manufacturing
– Aerospace & Aircraft

Argon is a versatile industrial gas used in welding applications, such as the welding of specialty alloys, and in the production of light bulbs and lasers. Because it is an inert gas, it can also be used to provide an oxygen- and nitrogen- free environment for heat treating processes.
