CORGON 10 is a two-component mixture comprising 90% argon and 10% carbon dioxide. This is a good general-purpose shielding gas for MAG welding of carbon and steel alloys. The amount of spatter and slag islands produced by CORGON 10 are low, making it ideal for applications where post-weld cleaning must be kept to a minimum. By saving time, it cuts manufacturing costs. Low surface oxidation also makes it suitable for applications that require post-weld painting.
CORGON 10 can be used manually or with robotic or automatic equipment and is best suited to material thicknesses between 1 and 8mm, although it can be used successfully outside this band.
Benefits at a Glance
Reduced post-weld cleaning with minimal slag on weld surface
Low surface oxidation for enhanced paintability and reduced clean-up time
Low spatter, resulting in less post-weld cleaning and improved paintability
Improved workshop environment with lower particulate fume levels.
