Modern materials call for modern gases

In metal processing, overall production efficiency is influenced to a large extent by welding. Any potential improvement in productivity and quality has a positive impact on production costs.

However, different materials have different requirements when it comes to the welding process and the shielding gas atmosphere. Especially when welding unalloyed steels, welds with even lower spatter and slag levels are now required: nowadays, many end products are treated with water-soluble paint after welding, which in some cases do not fully cover the welding spatter or slag islands on the surface of the weld. In the worst case scenario, this could cause premature corrosion. Messer has reacted to this development precociously by developing a range of optimized shielding gas mixtures for welding.
