Argoshield® Universal has been formulated for general fabrication of carbon steel over the typical thickness range 5-12 mm.
Argoshield® Heavy has been formulated for welders using the GMAW process on constructional steelworks typically greater than 10 mm thick.
Argoshield® 5 has been formulated specifically for welders using the GMAW process on carbon steel typically less than 4 mm thick.
Stainshield® is a general formulation gas for welders using the GMAW process on all stainless steels. It offers an economical solution, suitable for many applications on a wide range of metal thicknesses
Stainshield® Plus has been formulated specifically for welders using the GMAW process on all stainless steels, particularly 3CR12.
Copashield® is a fast welding gas for use on copper and copper based alloys. It is suitable for both GMAW and GTAW welding as well as aluminium and aluminium alloys above 6 mm in thickness.
TIGshield® is an argon shielding gas developed primarily for TIG welding. Welding with argon produces a relatively cold arc suitable for welding thin section materials.
Fluxshield® is an argon/carbon dioxide-based shielding gas specifically designed for high quality single- and multi-pass welding of mild, low alloy and stainless steels using the flux cored and metal cored wire processes.
Stainshield® TIG is a two-component mixture of argon and hydrogen developed primarily for TIG welding of stainless steels up to 10 mm thick.
Alushield® is a gas mixture of argon and helium for GMAW and GTAW welding of aluminium and its alloys.
Stainshield® Heavy is an argon-rich three component of argon- helium-CO₂ mixture developed primarily for the MIG welding of stainless steels above 10 mm thick, but it also has applications in the MIG welding of other metals.
Stainshield® TIG Plus is an argon-helium shielding gas mixture developed primarily for MIG and TIG welding of non-ferrous metals of between 3-10 mm.
