Argon Gas

 
Gas Code
  • SG061
 
Gas Composition: 
  • 99.995% Argon
 
Cylinder ID:     
  • Cylinder colour (to AS 4484): Peacock blue body, shoulder and neck.

 

 
Description:
  • Colourless, tasteless and odourless
  • Inert to all materials at all temperatures and pressures
  • Heavier than air, argon will collect in low-lying areas, ducts and drains
  • An asphyxiant
  • Lower thermal conductivity than most other gases
  • Low thermal conductivity acts as an insulator and will not transfer heat efficiently

 

 
Uses:
  • All the major applications of argon are related to the production, processing and fabrication of metals. 
  • The role of argon is nearly always to exclude atmospheric air from contact with metal alloys.
  • Purging gas to protect weld areas, such as the inside of pipes during welding is a good example.
  • Major component in most shielding gas mixtures for arc welding and cutting due to low ionising potential
  • The predominant gas used in shielding gases as it forms a very good shield due to the high density and total inertness
  • Used on a wide range of ferrous and non-ferrous materials for welding and cutting
  • Fills the inter-space in double glazed windows
