Argon is used as an inert shielding gas in welding and other high-temperature industrial processes where ordinarily non-reactive substances become reactive. Its purpose is to protect the weld area from atmospheric gases, such as oxygen, nitrogen, and water vapour. Depending on the materials being welded, these atmospheric gases can reduce the quality of the weld or make the welding more difficult. Argon is a colourless, odourless, non-flammable and non-toxic gas and is chemically inert.
We are able to sell cylinders outright. It makes sense for most clients to own their cylinder rather than pay rent! Rent quickly adds up, owning will save you money. No need for deposits and ongoing rental. Re-fills are done with a simple swap. We take your empty and give you a full one in return. When you purchase your cylinder or refill from Argon Xpress your cylinder is always in date.
Owning makes sense, from infrequent users all the way to large commercial clients. If you want Argon and Argon Mixes at the ready and plan to use your TIG Welder or MIG welder longer than a year, you should come out ahead and save ongoing costs! Smart buy and have the tools at the ready.
