MIG Welding Gas

MIG welding is one of the simplest forms of welding, requiring a MIG gas bottle and welding equipment. It is a form of arc welding that works by feeding a welding electrode through a gun. The feed wire moves through the gun to make a spark, melting the metal to weld it.

MIG welding is versatile and can be used to weld aluminium, steel and stainless steel and can be used for all gauges. MIG gas welds are good for welding dissimilar metals together.

MIG welding equipment is designed to run for extended periods without stopping. This makes it ideal for automated environments and large industrial sites where volume is important.

MIG Gas Composition

Your MIG gas is critical in preventing impurities like oxygen and nitrogen from getting into the weld area. Inert MIG gas like Argon 5/2 resists chemical reaction and effectively shields the weld.

Argon 5/2 MIG welding gas is a mixture of argon, carbon dioxide and oxygen to generate the best welding results. The properties of this MIG gas include minimal weld spatter, optimal flow and fluid weld pool and less chance of beading. Overall this kind of MIG gas should create a weld that looks better than a 100% argon welding gas, for example. The inclusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide in this MIG welding gas also provides more arc stability.

MIG Gas Bottle Supply

This MIG gas mixture is a good choice for welding different types of steel including stainless steel, mild, low alloy and galvanised steel.

MIG Welding Gas

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.

MIG Welding Gas Supply & Exchange Perth

We are able to sell mig welding gas cylinders outright. It makes sense for most clients to own their mig 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 mig 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.
