Our Argon 5 is the UK’s most popular mix for MIG/GMAW mild steel welding. It is a precise blend of welding gas made up of 93% Argon, 5% Carbon Dioxide and 2% Oxygen. Argon 5 is perfect for MIG welding of steel less than 5mm thick, such as car bodywork and thin sheet metal work. The mix of Argon, CO2 and Oxygen gives the perfect blend between arc stability, penetration and reduced spatter.
Argon 5 is also known as Argoshield Light (BOC), Cougar 5 (Air Products), Corgan 5 (Linde Gas), Hobbyweld 5 (Hobbyweld Gas), MIG Shield 5 (Ryval Gas) and Exellar 5(Air Liquide).
All our welding gas cylinders use the same regulator fittings as BOC, Air Products, Air Liquide, Hobbyweld, SGS Gases, Ryval Gas and Adams Gas.
