30 April 2019

At first glance, there appears to be little difference between the argon gas mixtures offered by the various suppliers, but Air Liquide’s relaunched ARCAL range has some very special features.

ARCAL Reference

The ARCAL Reference range comprises four high-quality ready-to-use shielding gases for argon-based arc welding: ARCAL Prime, ARCAL Chrome, ARCAL Speed and ARCAL Force. ARCAL Prime is a 99.998% pure argon gas, suitable for TIG and plasma welding for all materials, including titanium. It can also be used for MIG welding aluminium and copper alloys.

ARCAL Chrome is the ideal solution for MAG welding stainless steel. As its name suggests, ARCAL Chrome refers to chromium, the most important component in stainless steel for its corrosion resistance. As for ARCAL Speed, it is designed for MAG welding different grades of carbon steel. It allows high productivity and is therefore the perfect product for automatic and robotic applications.

ARCAL Force is the top choice for MAG welding heavy structures - such as bridges, agricultural machinery and ships - in carbon steel, even where the surface is oxidised or contaminated.

Why choose ARCAL?

ARCAL products comply with ISO 14175 and AWS-A5.32 quality standards. Not only does this confirm their quality, it also means that the gases conform to the most common professional standards for welding.

The gases are available in different cylinder sizes (from 33 litres to 50 litres), Depending on the application or working method, the cylinders can be supplied with EXELTOP. With a top which ensures maximum user-friendliness and safety.

ARCAL products are designed to minimise spatter while reducing oxidation. The cylinders also have an exceptionally low reject percentage, which guarantees high productivity.

Technical Support

“The quality of the ARCAL gases and our cylinders is beyond question, but ARCAL is about more than just that. For example, we have 17 sites in the United Kingdom. We can get any ARCAL gas to its destination very quickly.” explains Nick Tabbron, Sales Manager.

“Our technical support is also a differentiating factor. Our people go to customers’ premises to help them optimise their production process or resolve any problems they may have.”
