Argon is a versatile industrial gas commonly used in welding operations such as specialty alloys, as well as in light bulb and laser production. As an inert gas, argon provides an oxygen-free and nitrogen-free environment for the heat treatment process.
Argon inhibits oxidation during processing, thereby maintaining stable temperature and composition, and also flushes carbon monoxide and reduces chromium losses during the refining of argon-oxygen decarburized stainless steel.
Welding and Metalworking
Argon is an inert shielding atmosphere that enhances the arc stability and characteristics of gas shielded metal arc welding and is also the primary shielding gas for tungsten arc welding (GTAW) processes.
