Argon 5/2 mixes 93% Argon with 5% Carbon Dioxide and 2% Oxygen. In small amounts, there is evidence that the Oxygen can improve the stability of the arc and reduce the tension of the molten metal. Argon 5/2 provides arc stability, puddle control and reduces spatter compared to pure Oxygen. The improved weld quality and reduced clean up makes Argon 5/2 a preferable choice of gas for MIG welding.

Most common use:

  • Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding of mild steel
