Selecting the right shielding gas can optimise your welding results. Not only do shielding gases protect the finished weld from the effects of oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere, they can also have a positive effect on weld metal properties such as strength, corrosion resistance and toughness. In addition, they can optimise the weld bead shape and size as well as the weld porosity and fusion. And that’s not all – shielding gases can increase your productivity by accelerating the welding process and minimising the amount of spatter.
